There’s still time to apply

01 January 0001
QTAC applications open until 11 February.
With QTAC applications officially closing on 11 February there’s still time to change your life by applying to study at USQ's Springfield campus in semester one.

USQ Springfield Director Doug Fraser said the upcoming festive season was an excellent opportunity to consider studying at the university in 2013.

'For many of our students this will be the first time they have undertaken university study, whether they are school leavers or mature-aged students,' Mr Fraser said.

'Others will be considering further postgraduate studies to further or change career paths entirely. Some of these future students are still undecided about which path to take and will be using the Christmas and New Year break to think things through.'

Mr Fraser said each year the campus continued to grow and more programs were being offered.

'Springfield campus has a wide range of programs to suit everyone, including degrees in the arts, business, law, education, engineering and psychology.

'The new Bachelor of Engineering (Civil) will be offered for the first time in semester one next year.

'The four year engineering degree is a major enhancement to the existing Associate Degree of Engineering and Bachelor of Engineering Technology programs already offered at the campus and will allow graduates to become full professional engineers.

'Our Bachelor of Human Services (Counselling) program has also now received full accreditation by the Psychotherapy and Counselling Association of Australia (PACFA).

'Accreditation by PACFA meant students graduating from the course would now have increased standing in counselling communities and greater prospects for employment. It entitles graduates to become members of PACFA Affiliates and offers the possibility of professional registration under the private health insurance (accreditation rules 2008),' he said.

'For future students who may not meet entry requirements for their preferred course, we offer a fee-free program to give students a helping hand on their journey to university study.

'The Tertiary Preparation Program (TPP) gives students the skills needed to undertake their degree and guarantees entry to a USQ undergraduate program.'
