School students live the La Trobe life

WHETHER they're immersing themselves in the world of economics or feeling the pressure of becoming a paramedic, high school students will experience the wide world of University when the Bendigo Campus throws open its doors next week.

Students from years 10, 11 and 12 will experience a day in the life of a university student at the campus on Thursday July 10, 2014.

With the aim of helping students secure opportunities in their local area when they finish school, Victorian students and parents are invited to attend the free Experience La Trobe event on Thursday.

Workshops covering a wide range of career options will be held throughout the day to help students choose their future career paths and learn more about student life at university.

The workshops include a session with Simulation Man, a breathing, bleeding model used for training paramedics and nurses at the La Trobe Rural Health School

Students aspiring to a career in science will be able to peer into the miniature world of electron microscopy and find out more about what really grows on a human head.

They can also attend a graphic design workshop, or learn about where a degree in arts, marketing or business could take them in the future.

The day will begin with registration, followed by information sessions, hands on workshops, a lunchtime expo and a questions and answer opportunity for students and parents.

Students and their parents can register and find more information here.
