Under Graduate Work Skills and Experience
Uni survey finds job focus is missing. MORE than half of Australia’s university students have never talked about their career plans with their teachers, according to a study that could change the way university courses are taught. The findings of the Australian Survey of Student Engagement reveal that many undergraduates feel ill equipped to enter the workforce.
No surprises here….. one would almost always recommend a younger person to work before committing full time to university, and gain (life) experience before making an expensive choice. Would be interesting to know in Australia what advice parents, school and tertiary counsellors are offering youth? Even more so with fees, better for the majority to study via Vocational VET pathways, part time and or off campus, but then are universities in their present form a dying species?
