Evocca College opened the doors to its Midland Gate campus on January 25, the first of four planned for WA.

Chief executive Craig White said the expansion was part of the company’s focus on continually improving student engagement, progression and outcomes.

“Students progress more quickly in a classroom environment where they don’t have as many distractions and can easily draw on support when they need help,” he said.

“Our focus therefore is on ensuring that we have a strong campus presence across the country so that all of our students, even those studying via distance, have a physical location to which they can turn to talk face-to-face with tutors or participate in workshops.”

More than 300 WA students, who have been studying with Evocca via distance education, will now have access to a campus where they can study.

Evocca College Midland offers courses in business and community services, while travel and tourism courses will be available at future WA campuses.
