Future Moves

The Future Moves program aims to inspire school students and young people from regional and rural areas to attend university. Working across more than 70 partner schools, Future Moves sees approximately 14,000 students each year. Future Moves’ core activities are workshops in schools and events on campus aimed at ensuring that students can act on their aspirations in informed and effective ways, have a greater awareness of the opportunities that arise from pursuing university study and an understanding of how university might be part of their future, while making school studies more relevant.

Strong Moves in the Riverina

Future Moves were excited to host eighteen Year 9 and 10 Indigenous students from Mount Austin High School during our first Strong Moves program for 2017 at Charles Sturt University - CSU Wagga Wagga campus.

Strong Moves introduces school students to a university setting so they can learn about the many entry and study options available to them.

The school students were joined by Strong Moves Mentors who are current CSU students. This provided school students the chance to learn about the pathways that mentors have taken from high school through to university and be motivated to pursue tertiary education.

Is a science career for me?

Year 9 students attended Charles Sturt University - CSU Port Macquarie campus as part of the National Indigenous Science Education Program (NISEP).

Students participated in science experiments delivered by university students who are training as leaders for school NISEP events later in the year. For many students it was the first time they had the opportunity to attend the university campus. They were excited by the facilities, student stories and opportunities that exist at their local university.

With an increasing number of future jobs requiring science skills, hopefully after this initial experience, many students will be inspired to attend university and pursue a career in science.

Imagine meeting your primary school teacher at university!

This happened to Future Moves Leader, Jack McGrath, this week when his former primary school visited CSU Bathurst campus as part of the Future Moves program.

Jack, who is studying to be a paramedic, enjoyed showing the Year 6 students from Middleton Primary School his campus and catching up with his former teacher, Mr Harris.

Year 6 students were inspired to see a previous student from their school welcoming them to university and studying towards becoming a paramedic.

Real Time in Paramedicine

Chloe recently spent a day as part of the Future Moves Real Time program with Paramedicine students at Charles Sturt University - CSU, Bathurst Campus. During her campus visit she had the opportunity to learn study tips, how to use the library facilities and its resources. Chloe also attended a lecture, a practical tutorial and mingled with paramedic students.

Real Time offers senior students in Future Moves partner schools the opportunity to spend a day with current university students to experience what studying a degree is all about.

How do you help with the costs of university?

Many universities offer scholarships to help students with the costs of study. These can be for living costs or costs associated with courses such as textbooks and equipment.

Laura shares a few tips on the kinds of scholarships available and how to strengthen your application.

The Country Education Foundation has a great guide to scholarships available for regional students http://engage.cef.org.au/directory/scholarship.

Remember to check application deadlines -- some scholarships close at the end of June!

For some useful guidelines on how to write scholarship applications, check out Module 05 of the free online course What's Uni Like? www.whats-uni-like.edu.au.
