Queensland university gets 5 million dollar boost
The James Cook University will receive more than 5 million dollars of funding for a brand new, state of the art facility, it has been confirmed. Health and Ageing Minister, Nicola Roxon visited the local area yesterday to announce the cash boost and discuss plans with experts and university representatives.
Authorities from the university will put the money towards a modern and innovative training facility, which will provide students with the best possible learning environment and allow them to access a huge variety of resources. The rest of the money will be used to build student accommodation near the training facility.
Staff at the university have welcomed the cash injection and are looking forward to putting the money to good use; such modern facilities will undoubtedly make the university more attractive to students and admissions staff will be able to select the most promising students. Staff are also looking forward to working at the new facility, which will offer them a much more pleasant and vibrant working environment.
The students will gain practical experience by working alongside dentists in the local town of Mackay in addition to their academic study and learning.Join this Discussion
