Choosing the right course

Students should choose subject areas they enjoy, as this will help them succeed at university and in their career.

They should also find out as much as they can about different courses by talking to their career advisor, teachers, university representatives, and friends and family.

It’s also a great idea to talk to people working in the industries they are interested in, and do some voluntary work experience.

Visit career websites like My Career Match, Graduate Careers Australia and Job Outlook.

Attend ACU’s Open Day. They are generally held in July – September, so plan early.

ACU’s University Experience is a free event for Year 10, 11 and 12 students to help get a feel for a particular area of study and a taste of university life.
