Weekend Courier - - Front Page -

BALDIVIS is lead­ing the way with the up­take of higher ed­u­ca­tion on­line.

Open Uni­ver­si­ties Aus­tralia re­search shows Baldivis was the top re­gional area in WA for get­ting an on­line ed­u­ca­tion.

In WA, Baldivis, El­len­brook, Broome and Mar­garet River make up the lead­ing re­gional ar­eas with the high­est num­ber of on­line stu­dents.

The most pop­u­lar cour­ses in the area are the Bach­e­lor of Ed­u­ca­tion, Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness and the Bach­e­lor of Be­havioural Stud­ies.

Re­search shows about 70 per cent of stu­dents who leave their re­gional home to at­tend univer­sity never go back.

Many stu­dents opt for on­line study in­stead of on-cam­pus so they can re­main at home.
