Country University Centre


Did you know that only 24% of regional students are likely to gain a bachelor degree or higher?

This is 50% lower compared to metro students.

Edward River Council wants you to support a Country University Centre located in Deniliquin. The Centre will create opportunities for youth to remain in the local community, help us to grow the area and become successful professionals in our region.

A Country University Centre offers students the opportunity to study a degree from over 40 academic institutions, providing face-to-face support, learning skill advisors and the ability for flexible access to facilities and out of hours support.
