There are 30 per cent more people studying at CQUniversity Bundaberg this year compared to last, with health and education the most in demand courses.
More than 200 first year students are wrapping up their orientation week at the local CQUni campus before classes begin on March 8.
Bachelor degrees in Nursing, Secondary and Primary Education, Physiotherapy and Paramedicine are the top five courses being studied for term one.
Associate Vice-President of the CQUniversity Wide Bay Burnett region Mr Luke Sinclair says university staff were looking forward to students returning to campus in 2021.
“The COVID situation in 2020 forced universities to transition their delivery to online for much of last year ... it is great that we will soon start to experience a more normal life on campus," Mr Sinclair says.
“For us at CQUniversity, this essentially means we are going back to our pre-pandemic delivery model that includes both on-campus and online delivery (depending on the unit and course of study a student is enrolled in)."
