A taste of uni for students

STUDENTS at St Luke’s Anglican School will be a step ahead of their peers after the school signed a contract to fast-track youth study options with CQUniversity.

For the past year, students have been undertaking subjects for uni courses including Introduction to Aviation, Law and Welfare, Creative Industries and Introduction to Forensics and Functional Biology.

The contract will see this extended learning continued throughout 2010.

St Luke’s principal Martin Oates is thrilled with the extension of the existing ties between the school and the university.

“Courses passed go directly towards the associated degree, shortening the time spent at uni once they leave school,” he said.

“It also acts as a ‘try before you buy’ which certainly suits the ‘Y’ and ‘Z’ generations.”
