Longy breaks records…
A flood of student interest in agricultural studies has resulted in Longerenong College making the decision to cap enrolment numbers for the first time in the institution’s 125-year history.
The response to the annual open day was overwhelming with more than 300 people including prospective students making the most of an opportunity to visit the campus.
“The response has been fantastic. We have been forced to cap our enrolments simply because we have to ensure we can provide the quality hands-on training of which we are renowned” John Goldsmith said.
The College has attracted the largest number of applications, not only for next year, but also for 2016 and 2017.
Longy graduates are highly sought after and highly regarded in the agricultural industry. There are many jobs in the agricultural sector, and a qualification from Longy will provide graduates an opportunity to pursue diverse careers.
A special thank you must go to our dedicated staff and current students who participated in the Open Day. Our students showed prospective students and their families around the campus, the accommodation and the college farm. Our students addressed the prospective families with tours, displays and personalised information sessions. We are so proud of our current students and the way in which they conducted themselves during our Open Day.
There will be an Information Day on Friday December 12 for students who were unable to make the recent open day. The day is designed only for students intending to study at Longerenong College next year.
