James Cook University will hold an information evening in Cairns this Wednesday (8 May) for people who are considering starting, or changing courses mid-year.

Student Liaison Manager Bronwyn Bender said with mid-year applications to start uni in July now open, the evenings were aimed at prospective students.

Ms Bender said the sessions were designed to help people find out more about different courses and to have their questions answered by JCU’s experts.

“The information evenings are an opportunity to gain further information on university courses, career directions and how to apply,” Ms Bender said.

“Whether you finished school last year or been thinking of studying, we will have a range of academics and staff on hand to assist with enquiries.

“There will also be a series of presentations to provide a more detailed overview of select courses, particularly those with mid-year entry.”

Ms Bender encouraged people to think broadly about fitting study into their life.

“Study can be undertaken part-time to work around work and there is a lot more flexibility with a number of courses offered online including Business, Early Childhood Education and Nursing Science.”

Details: 5.30pm, Wednesday 8 May, JCU Cairns, Building A3 – The Crowther Theatre
