Career Experience Opportunities Coming Soon

Friday, 21 May 2021

Recently, the Your Pathway Team from Mary MacKillop attended the Student Advisors Information Day at the University of Southern Queensland, Toowoomba Campus.

USQ provide this opportunity to school-based career advisors to promote the fantastic courses and facilities on offer for our students right here in Toowoomba.

We had the opportunity to hear from current uni students undertaking courses in psychology, aviation, anthropology and microbiology. Each student provided us an invaluable insight into their pathway journey, each taking a unique entry into their chosen field of study. The anthropology the student didn't achieve the initial ATAR requirement and had to find an alternate path to her entry, the aviation student did not attend mainstream senior schooling but found her calling after meeting female pilots at a careers day! These and other stories from current university students, offered valuable insight into the numerous pathways any student can take to pursue their dream career!

The day concluded with a campus tour of the Nursing Labs, Flight Simulator and Creative Arts precinct - all areas we highly recommend visiting! If you would like the opportunity to see, hear and learn more, USQ Toowoomba, Springfield and Ipswich campus' are hosting a variety of Experience Days exclusively to Year 9, 10 and 11 students over the coming months. There is limited availability for these events and we recommend trying at least one or all days on offer over a variety of fields. You may just discover a hidden passion you didn't know you had!

For more information you can visit USQ Student Experience Days and the USQ Open Day, or chat to the Your Pathway Team at Mary MacKillop Catholic College.
