TAFE open day: explore, encounter, engage

The Coomera campus of TAFE Queensland is a $26m facility, purpose-built for delivering real life skills to Gold Coasters. And when the campus opens its doors on Saturday 20 July, you’ll see exactly why there are so many happy graduates.

TAFE provides serious pathways into a bunch of industries and the Coomera campus is home to specialised courses in cyber security, virtual reality, screen and media, graphic design, interior design, building design, software development, information technology and music. Students can even opt for a Bachelor in games and interactive design as well as the only Bachelor degree in music on the Gold Coast.

Dana Lowrey AKA DVNA is a TAFE graduate and she said her experience was extremely hands on and practical.

“The Coomera campus is fantastic,” she said, “with modern recording studios which I was in every day creating new music and working alongside like-minded artistic individuals.”

The open day includes guided tours exploring facilities such as the auditorium, box theatre, industry standard sound recording and music rehearsal studios, drawing rooms, PC and Mac computer labs, digital video and editing suites, 3D motion capture, production control facilities and much more.

Plus, there’ll be live music from current students.

TAFE Coomera campus is at 198 Foxwell Road, walking distance from Coomera train station and the open day takes place Saturday 20 July. More info at bit.ly/TAFEopenday.
