They held the open day Sept 10 last year.It’s now time for students who plan to go to uni in 2006 to finalise their preferences and to start preparing for the year ahead.
Those considering studying at Macquarie University can find out more about courses at the Pathways Day website located at www.pathwaysday.mq.edu.au which has comprehensive information about degrees offered in 2006. In late December and early January they can have their questions answered by experienced advisors and current Macquarie University students via an electronic bulletin board (www.hscandbeyond.mq.edu.au), by telephone (freecall 1800 351 117) or by email at email@example.com.
Students who are concerned that they do not have a high enough UAI to obtain entry to their preferred course at Macquarie University should attend Pathways Day, on Wednesday 4 January for advice on alternative entry pathways.
Pathways Day will be held at the University’s North Ryde campus from 9.30am to 4pm. Parking is free on the day, and free shuttle buses will run to and from Epping and Gordon train stations to the University between 9am and 4pm. State and private buses also travel to Macquarie University from many areas of Sydney.
Information sessions given on Pathways Day will focus on how students may transfer to a Macquarie degree after successfully studying, for example, at TAFE, at Open Universities Australia and the Sydney Institute of Business and Technology, or through enrolment in non-award subjects or a European language certificate.
Pathways Day is also a good opportunity for future students to familarise themselves with the Macquarie campus, find out about other aspects of university life (such as sporting clubs) and receive advice on the transition from high school to uni.
