The campus’ future students adviser Jess Croft said 88 students from Wanganui Park Secondary College, Shepparton High School, Goulburn Ovens Institute of TAFE and Shepparton English Language Centre attended the open day.
Ms Croft said attendees were given the chance to learn about the campus’ courses such as accounting, business, nursing and health sciences.
‘‘It’s the first time Shepparton’s campus has had an open day,’’ she said.
‘‘It gives people the chance to experience what it’s like to be a university student.’’
Goulburn Ovens Institute of TAFE student Tarandeep Kaur, 20, said she moved to Shepparton with her family from India late last year.
Ms Kaur said she spent the day learning about the university’s accounting degree and hoped to enrol in the course once she finished her certificate three in English at the institute.
‘‘In the future I hope to study a bachelor of accounting here because I did accounting studies in India,’’ she said.
Shepparton English Language Centre student Grace Bahati, 17, said she had enjoyed learning how to administer CPR during a workshop about the campus’ nursing degree.
