Experience university life!
The UNI-BOUND Residential School is an overnight program for students in Year 9, which provides an in-depth experience of on-campus life and study.
The next Residential School will be held in early November 2013.
At the Residential School, students:
- Talk to university students about their experiences
- Stay in a university residential college
- Discover how university courses can open up many career choices
- Take specially-designed lectures
- Find out what really happens at university – and how fun and exciting it can be!
The Equity and Diversity Office encourages applicants from participating schools who identify with one or more of the following equity groups:
- Students from low socioeconomic / low income backgrounds
- Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
- Students from non-English speaking backgrounds
- Students with disabilities
2012 UNI-BOUND Residential School
In 2012, 48 students from seven partner schools attended the UNI-BOUND Residential School: Kempsey, Lismore, Nambucca Heads, Richmond River, South Grafton and Wollumbin High Schools.
Students participated in a wide variety of activities:
- Creating their impression of 'university' in an art class
- Putting together human anatomy models in our health and human sciernce labs
- Learning about life's adventures in a law school lecture
- Checking out how a recording studio works in our school of music
- Undertaking fitness tests in exercise sciernce labs
And, of course, chatting to our own SCU student supervisors about their own experiences of university.
