The University of the Sunshine Coast is on track to take ownership of a Fraser Coast campus in time for semester one next year.
The University of Southern Queensland has signed transfer of lease forms for its Hervey Bay campus.
The transfer is still subject to final government approval.
But USC’s Vice-Chancellor Greg Hill says the handover won’t reduce student opportunities on the Fraser Coast.
Greg Hill: “We’ll be entering into a process with the community and schools in particular to look at where the demand is, look at where the job prospects are in the Fraser Coast region and we’d hope to expand the number of degrees we’re offering there on an annual basis.”
