YEAR 6 - Uni Opens Up Your World
Year 6 students visit their local campus to explore the university, discover their personal strengths and learn more about course areas and career pathways. Whilst on campus, they participate in a number of workshops which introduce a range of career options and how these link with their education, goals and dreams.
YEAR 7 – explore your potential
Year 7 workshops delivered in schools provide students with the opportunity to explore their
potential as the hero and decision maker in their own career journey. The focus of these
workshops is to introduce students to skills they will use throughout their high school years as
they set themselves up for life beyond school.
YEAR 9- Going To Uni
In year 9, students have the opportunity to visit their local Southern Cross University Campus. As part of this visit students learn more about course content across a variety of academic disciplines; and learn to recognise and develop their personal skills and strengths as they begin to make career and life choices.
YEAR 10- Stellar@Uni Days
Small groups of year 10 students attend the Lismore or Coffs Harbour Campus to explore an academic area of interest in more detail. A number of Stellar@Uni days are held throughout the year. Whilst on campus students attend a lecture, participate in a hands-on-tutorials and hear from academic staff about course structure and careers. Students also attend a question and answer session with current university students, having the opportunity to hear about the diverse range of pathways to university.
YEAR 10 – Role Model Careers Day
The Stellar team and role models from Clarence Valley Council, Southern Cross University, TAFE NSW and other community organisations visit each program partner school. Throughout the event students rotate in small groups, participating in a number of 15-20 minute presentations. During each presentation students have the opportunity to hear about each individual presenter’s pathway to their current position, lessons which they learnt and what their day-to-day job involves. A large component of the day is the opportunity for student to ask questions and make connections with careers within their local
“All in all, Stellar is a great program for schools and hopefully the Uni as well. It takes the “scare factor” out of the equation and offers so much positivity for students who would otherwise choose an easier career path rather than going to University.”
