Open day introduces 'A New State of Mind'

The University’s 2017 Open Days kick off this Sunday (July 30) with Hobart hosting the first of three to be held across the State.

The Hobart campus will open its doors from 10am – 3pm showcasing the extensive range of study options which not only expands minds, but career opportunities too.

Selected tours of city campuses will also be operating on the day.

The Medical Sciences Precinct in Hobart will be running tours at 10.40am and 12.40pm.

This year, visitors will have the chance to find out how the University is creating A New State of Mind with study programs that not only deliver world-class degrees, but real-world work skills and experiences.

Prospective students have the chance to talk one-on-one with course advisors, lecturers and students across a number of disciplines.

Key Open Day highlights in Hobart include:

  • Under a huge marquee, find displays, activities and demonstrations of drones, robots and remote technologies we have across the University. See how we can survey an entire forest without human involvement, conduct aerial photography to picture modern buildings before they are constructed, monitor a farm on the other side of the world, or explore under or above the deadly but beautiful Antarctic.
  • Test out your anatomy and painting skills with Anatomy Man and the anatomical models.
  • AMC have sailed their training vessel MV Bluefin to Hobart. Take a shuttle bus to IMAS Salamanca and climb aboard Bluefin to see what AMC students experience during their studies.
  • Music performances from the Conservatorium of Music staff and students will be entertaining crowds.

This year each Tasmanian campus will host an Open Day of its own with Hobart (July 30); Cradle Coast (August 6) and Launceston (August 12).

Each campus will host a variety of events including course information sessions, campus tours, demonstrations, hands-on activities, displays, food and live entertainment.

Visitors will also be able to find out information on scholarships, accommodation and student support services.

A series of Taster Workshops will also be held at the Faculty of Health’s Sydney campuses at Rozelle and Darlinghurst, in August.

Nursing Workshops will be held at the Rozelle campus on Friday, 25 August from 3pm to 7pm and at the Darlinghurst campus on Saturday 26 August from 12pm to 4pm.

Paramedicine Practice Workshops will be held at the Rozelle Campus on Friday, 25 August from 3pm to 7pm.
