More for Moreton Bay study access

Uni Sunshine Coast plans to nearly double research, teaching and space for students at its Moreton Bay Campus by 2023

The campus opened last year, and is expected to grow to 10 000 students in nine years.

“Our main focus is to provide high quality face-to-face, interactive teaching … and this campus expansion will help us enhance our students’ experience of attending university,” VC Helen Bartlett says.

But presumably there will be no lecture-theatres, USC is replacing the old ex-cathedra arrangement with digitally delivered “learning materials” (CMM September 28).

Moreton Bay is a big achievement for the university, located to serve a growing community north of Brisbane. It is also a tribute to former VC Greg Hill, who recognised the need and kept at local government and ministers until they committed (CMM February 19 2020)
