New Way for Students To Enter University Life
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – December 21st, 2006
University of Sydney Union has partnered with studentface.com.au, Australia’s largest online student community, to launch a new service for undergraduate students and high school leavers.
Australia’s skills shortage has created record demand for graduates; however, high school students find it hard to enter university because they don’t know any university students who can encourage them to enter tertiary education.
“This partnership is significant because it helps high school leavers log onto studentface.com.au, locate University students who are studying their desired degree, ask them questions and then enter university with greater confidence about what they are studying”, explained Jahangir Shagaev from studentface.com.au.
Studentface is Australia’s largest online community for students with representation at over 25 Australian universities where students form study groups, share photos, videos, make friendships and find career opportunities.
“We think studentface.com.au is great because it helps students have a better university experience”, said Katy Fernandez, President of the USYD Union.
Studentface.com.au is Australia’s largest online community for university students with presence at over 25 Australian Universities, representing over 80% of Australia’s student population. The company is based in Sydney and has a vision of creating an online platform for Australian students where high school leavers can discover what life is like at university and where university students can access career opportunities through alumni and graduates of their institution.
