HIGH school students have been given a taste of university life at Thurgoona over the past two days.

Teenagers from Finley High School, North Albury’s James Fallon High School, Wodonga Middle Years College and Culcairn’s Billabong High School had the chance to learn about courses offered by Charles Sturt University.

The activity, which involved 60 year 8 and 9 students, is part of the university’s Future Moves program co-ordinated by Ilena Young.

“We want to encourage young people to become more engaged in school by introducing them to the world of university and making them more confident to consider tertiary study as a realistic option,” Ms Young said.

Staff and students from the community health, environmental sciences, education and library services fields shared insights with the students.
