Tertiary studies beckon for the VCE class of 2013

DEGREES in engineering, teaching, arts and science are popular choices for the students who graduated from South Gippsland Secondary College at the end of last year.

All of the 32 students who applied for a tertiary place – at either university or TAFE – received an offer, with half of these students receiving their first preference, five their second and four their third preference. About ten of the students plan to defer their studies for a year, largely to earn some money.

There were some very excited young men and women when the main round of offers came out last Friday. Some made the most of the opportunity to consult with SGSC careers coordinator Marg O’Donnell (‘MO’) who made herself available at the college on Monday to advise students uncertain whether to take up their offers or wait until the second round offers are released on February 6.
