Geraldton Universities Centre
Project status: Stage 1 - Growing the Geraldton Universities Centre Through to Sustainability to be completed September 2015
Stage 2 – Geraldton Universities Centre Building completed September 2014
Geraldton now offers a broad range of full degree programs thanks to the expansion of the Geraldton Universities Centre (GUC) made possible through two stages of Royalties for Regions investment.
GUC received $1.05 million for Stage 1 to market the centre to attract students, develop and implement new courses, introduce new technologies, attract and engage high quality tutors, and develop enrolment projections and strategic plans.
A further investment of $3 million was made into GUC for Stage 2 from Royalties for Regions' Mid West Investment Plan for the construction of new facilities that included classrooms, IT facilities, office, toilets and a kitchen, following recommendations and assistance provided by the Mid West Development Commission.
Enrolment numbers continue to rise because of the new programs available such as engineering, business, psychology, communications, bridging courses and the re-introduction of nursing along with new teaching rooms to deliver them.
