Our large shared campus has a range of practical skills centres and workshops including a state-of-the-art automotive workshop, functioning hair and beauty salon, commercial kitchen, child care centre, simulated hospital for nursing training, farming gardens and nursery, and the only furniture design workshop on the North Coast. The campus features extensive student amenities including a multi-level library, computer facilities, on-campus gym, campus bar, indoor and outdoor sporting facilities, and the popular Osprey Restaurant.

    • Today is 'Go Home On Time Day' as silly as it sounds you really should give it a go. The fact is, a poor work/study/life balance has a direct impact on your health, relationships, study, and workplace. As they say 'the ball is in your court'.
