Everyone is welcome to JCU’s Open Day on Thursday Island this Friday (6 September).

This year marks the tenth birthday celebrations for JCU’s Thursday Island Study Centre, which offers the Bachelor of Nursing Science and the Bachelor of Education in primary school teaching.

“Everyone is invited to visit for a campus tour and to learn more about the courses we offer,” nursing science lecturer and study centre coordinator Matt Mason said.

“In both nursing science and education we use a mix of locally-based staff, online material and video-linked classes to deliver our courses.

“Open Day is a chance to see how that works, and to talk to staff and students about what it’s like to study here.”

Open Day will run from 1.00pm and 4.00pm at the JCU Study Centre on Victoria Parade, and will include traditional dancing and a free sausage sizzle.
