THE number of students hoping to study at CQUniversity continues to grow.

The university has revealed there has been a surge of interest for courses at its Bundaberg campus.

New figures show first round preferences are up more than 40% on 2008, with strong interest in the nursing, accounting and environmental fields of study.

The university’s director of corporate communications, Mike Donahue, said it was good news for the regional campus.

“We’re in a period now where we’ve extended offers to more than 250 students at Bundaberg,” he said.

“First preferences for students are up 40% over last year.

“We’re beginning to see a turnaround in demand among students in central Queensland.”

CQUniversity experienced a 50% increase in enquiries in 2009 compared to 2008.

Nearly 7000 people made official requests for program and course information from the university last year.
