Come to the Hobart Open Day and discover A New State of Mind

Find out where a new state of mind can take you when the University of Tasmania hosts this year’s Open Day in Hobart on Sunday, July 30.

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

This year visitors will have the chance to discover the driving forces of the campaign, A New State of Mind, such as study programs that not only deliver world-class degrees, but real-world skills and experiences.

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

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

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.

In Hobart tours of city campuses, including Medical Science Precinct, School of Creative Arts and IMAS, will also be operating with shuttle buses to and from the Sandy Bay campus.

Highlights of Hobart’s Open Day will include:

Under a huge marquee, find displays, activities and demonstrations of drones, robots and remote technologies. 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. Enter the competition to win your own drone.

· Test out your anatomy and painting skills with Anatomy Man and the anatomical models.

· Take a shuttle bus to IMAS Salamanca and climb aboard the AMC’s training vessel MV Bluefin to see what AMC students experience during their studies. Take the helm at the ship’s bridge, check out the sleeping quarters for a typical seafarer and have a look through the engine room, which is the everyday office for a chief engineer (IMAS Salamanca waterfront).

· Hear performances by the Conservatorium of Music staff and students.
