Last Wednesday Zoe Dawson, manager of the Cooma Universities Centre, travelled to the University of Canberra main campus in Bruce to participate in the Faculty of Business, Government and Law Employability Showcase. The showcase gave students enrolled in the University of Canberra a chance to meet with university partners (such as the CUC), potential employees, volunteer coordinators and traineeship providers.
One of the University of Canberra volunteers at the event was ex Monaro High School student Helena Sherlock (graduated in 2013). Helena spent a year following her HSC doing a traineeship with Cigana Workwear (next to the CUC) and studying her Certificate III in Retail Operations at Cooma TAFE. Helena is now studying a Bachelor of Commerce full time at the University of Canberra and working part time at Uni Lodge.
The Cooma Universities Centre partners with the University of Canberra to offer a unique degree - the Bachelor of Business Studies (Event and Tourism Management). The degree has been especially designed for the Snowy Mountains and is offered in a flexible delivery mode, allowing students to commence whenever suits them and study at their own pace. Students can utilise the facilities of the CUC, as well as attend set tutorials where they can get assistance from subject experts and academic tutors.
