Students explore science study options at CDU's Year 10 Discovery Day
Territory school students recently had their first taste of "uni life" and learnt about the opportunities available to them at CharlesDarwin University once they finish high school.

The annual Year 10 Discovery Day was held at Casuarina campus for students from around Darwin and provided an opportunity to visit the campus to see first-hand the study options available to them, including the new clinical sciences program that links to the Flinders Medical Program.

CDU student recruitment manager Natalie Shervill said the day came at a time when Year 10 students were starting to consider what subjects they should be enrolling in for their senior high school years.

"Throughout the day students had the opportunity to attend 'hands-on' break-out sessions in the various disciplines offered at CDU, and met staff and current students," she said.

"It was a fun and informative day that allowed students to visit the university to find out more about courses including Law, Social Work and Humanitarian and Community Studies, Engineering, Nursing, Music, Visual Arts, and Exercise and Sport Sciences."
