AS SENIOR students graduated from schools around Ipswich last week, Year 9 Bremer State High School students were also treated to a taste of post-school life.

High-achieving students sampled university life on a Day of Experience at the University of Queensland's Ipswich campus.

The all-day adventure included a formal welcome, tour of the campus, mini-lectures from UQ programs, and a scavenger hunt. Current undergraduates also talked about their study at UQ and university-focused lifestyles.

BSHS deputy principal Graeme Goodger said the day was aimed at taking the mystery out of tertiary education.

"Many of our students do consider university study an option, but this day has been designed to take the intimidation out of uni for those students who aren't quite sure," Mr Goodger said.

"We also want to show students where they could be if they work hard.

"Year 9 is a good time to do this because many of our Year 10s have already decided what they want to do."
