Open Day is your chance to check out the University. Chat to students and staff, cruise around the grounds, buildings and social spaces, check out the facilities and generally get a feel for the vibe of the campus. Picture yourself being a student here and see how it feels!

Firstly, plan your day. Look at the program (PDF 3.2MB) or search for events online beforehand and see what presentations and activities you are interested in, what times they are on and where. From there, make sure you collect the brochures you need and ask lots of questions! Our staff and students will be there to talk to you about courses, how to apply and give you a sense of what university life is really like.

You can ask us anything you like, we are here to help, but here’s a list to get you started:

  • How many hours of classes should I be expected to attend?
  • How many hours of extra study will I need to do?

  • What if I don’t have the right ATAR score?
  • What if I haven’t studied for a long time?
  • What help can I get with my study skills?
  • What costs are involved?
  • Are there any scholarships available in this study area?
  • Can I defer my place or take a year off during the course?
  • Can I transfer from one course or campus to another?
  • What sort of career(s) does this course lead to?
  • Where have other graduates found jobs?
  • Is there any help given by the University to find work after graduation?
