Hundreds of students who are pondering further study and have questions about careers in commerce and business will visit the University of Sydney campus today (Wednesday 5 January) as part of the annual university-wide Info Day.
Prior to the official cut-off date for UAC preference Main Round Offers (on Thursday 6 January), future students will have the opportunity to talk with academic and administrative staff, current students to help them make decisions about their next step into tertiary study.
There has already been significant interest in a number of The University of Sydney Business School (formerly the Faculty of Economics and Business) programs particularly the revitalised Bachelor of Commerce which is being offered by for the first time in 2011.
Acting Dean of The University of Sydney Business School, Professor Tyrone Carlin, said Info Day is an important final chance for those with any last minute questions about what to expect from University and what the best program is to suit their specific educational needs.
"We have a lot of new initiatives rolling out in 2011 which we are very excited about," said Professor Carlin. "One of the highlights is our new work integrated learning program which will allow students to obtain exposure to real-world business cases and capitalise on the Business School's extensive corporate connections, internationally renowned teaching and global partnerships."
The generous scholarships on offer from The University of Sydney Business School also continue to attract a great deal of interest from school leavers. In addition to the Scholarships offered by the University, the Business School awards scholarships to commencing students, ranging in value up to $15,000 per year.
The Business School's Scholarship program is tailored to supporting the special needs of students who are high achievers with strong personal attributes in our community, in academic study and varied areas of extracurricular activities, such as, sport, fundraising, mentoring and public speaking, while also assisting those high achieving students from disadvantaged backgrounds.
