THERE was a fair bit of nail-biting going on in households around the Southern Downs this week as Year 12 graduates awaited their tertiary education offers.

One Warwick girl lucky enough to gain her first preference was Jane Bourke.

Jane will head to Brisbane soon to study a Bachelor of Arts and Social Work at the Australian Catholic University.

The former Warwick High student said she couldn't wait to start learning about an area for which she felt passionate.

"I've always been interested in human rights and people's right to live a happy and healthy life and Mum has always said she can see I'm passionate about it," Jane said.

"I would love to work in child protection with the police but all areas of the field interest me."

She said while she was quietly confident she would get into the course, there was always the chance she wouldn't.

"I knew I was in with a good chance ... but I still had that slight feeling I wouldn't, if they had too many applicants or something," Jane said.

When she logged onto the QTAC site late Wednesday night, she was thrilled to see the congratulations greeting pop up on the screen.

Jane's course is four years full-time and she can't wait to start into university life.

She will live in student accommodation with nine other students from various courses.

"It should be fun."
