Regional University Centre Program
Maranoa community members have established an interim board to prepare an application for funding under the Australian Government’s Regional Universities Centre Program. If the application is successful, the funding will establish a centre in Roma to support local tertiary and VET students who are studying externally.
A Regional University Centre is a facility that regional students can access while studying courses which may be delivered by distance from any Australian institution.
Centres provide the following:
• Infrastructure including study spaces, video conferencing, computing facilities and high-speed internet access
• Administrative and academic support services such as developing writing and researching skills, managing administrative processes
• Student support services including pastoral support, study advice and accessing student services.
The interim board is seeking community feedback to assist in the funding application. If you are a current enrolled student, potential university student, local employer who employs graduates or a potential volunteer mentor for the Centre, we would love to hear your thoughts.

Funding applications close on Friday, 13 December 2019, with successful applicants announced early in 2020.
