Over 40 CQUniversity students will help pioneer the new Uni Hub Spencer Gulf at Port Pirie.

Among those are CQUni Nursing student Pam Brown and her teenage daughter Ayzia Arnold, who is enrolled to study Psychology through CQUni’s Start Uni Now (SUN) program.

Pam has had a diverse range of jobs, including being a health products rep, and is now working at the Laura Hospital as an enrolled nurse.

“I’m excited and looking forward to supported online learning through CQUniversity,” she says.

Daughter Ayzia says CQUni had been helpful throughout her enrolment into the SUN program.

“Longer-term I’m keen to progress into Criminology or possibly do a double degree and become an English teacher,” she says.

CQUniversity’s Associate Vice-Chancellor for the South Australian region, Professor Drew Dawson said that the University was looking forward to working with the Hub and providing opportunities for students to access a variety of high-quality course offerings.

“We have also partnered with other regional study hubs including Geraldton and Cooma to deliver courses using the same model we will be using in the Spencer Gulf,” said Professor Dawson.

“Studying an online course with the support of a local university hub takes the isolation out of online learning and allows students to access important resources and form connections with other students and staff on the ground."

The pioneering CQUniversity students at the Uni Hub Spencer Gulf are enrolled in a range of undergraduate programs as well as SUN and the STEPS access program.
