Real benefits from local study

When comparing alternative university locations, there are some significant benefits for students who choose USQ Fraser Coast. As a smaller campus with small class sizes, you can be assured of a quality teaching experience. The face-to-face teaching allows you the opportunity to interact in class with your lecturers. You will get to know each other and your lecturers will be available to help you when you have questions or need advice.

And the cost of living in Hervey Bay is lower than capital city locations and many regional cities throughout Australia.
