The course to a bright future

Hume City Council will continue to be a local government leader in education and encourages residents to consider a course through the Hume Multiversity initiative, Hume Mayor, Councillor Adem Atmaca, said today.

Cr Atmaca said Hume Multiversity would soon hold information sessions for anyone interested in applying for a higher education course, with a wide selection of studies on offer.

“Hume Multiversity has been a tremendous success in recent years because it has helped many people to access tertiary studies in a friendly, familiar and local setting,” Cr Atmaca said.

“It’s popular with people from many different backgrounds, such as a secondary student who may have recently left school, or a professional worker that wants to make a career change.

“Our courses give people the skills that are needed in numerous industries, and they are a great way to improve your chances of finding the job you want.

“Hume Multiversity offers many residents the opportunity to study practical courses, without the need to travel longer distances to attend a large university campus.”

Information sessions are scheduled for Tuesday 9 June 2015 between 10am and 1pm at The Age Library, Broadmeadows, and from 3pm to 6pm at Craigieburn Library.

Courses through Hume Multiversity are offered by some of Victoria’s top educational institutions, including Victoria University, Kangan Institute, Deakin University and La Trobe University.

Students participate in classes through video-conferencing in real-time, and tutors and lecturers are also available to offer face-to-face assistance.

Cr Atmaca said Council was thrilled to present an expansive range of tertiary and pathway courses.

“The Hume Global Learning Centres at Broadmeadows and Craigieburn accommodate the Hume Multiversity program, and the courses are at the levels of university preparation, certificate, diploma and bachelor,” he said.

“There are courses in areas like business and early childhood education, as well as arts, sport development, management, and education support.

“We also present courses that assist our residents to prepare for university study, and that’s especially helpful for people who may not have studied for a long time.”

There is no need to book for the Hume Multiversity information sessions.

“Everyone is welcome,” Cr Atmaca said.

“The sessions will explain how Hume Multiversity works, and provide information about courses, enrolment and fees.

“Attendees will also be able to speak with course facilitators one-on-one, so that questions can be answered in a friendly and confidential manner.”

Many students of Hume Multiversity combine their studies with work commitments.

Cr Atmaca said he was confident that the education programs made available through the Hume Multiversity initiative would continue to help residents from across the community.

“This is a really unique way to study, because Hume Multiversity offers a number of world-class education providers, and all in the one place,” he said.

“It’s another way that Hume City Council assists residents to improve their career prospects so that they can live the life they desire.”
