Open Day is your chance to find out about our study options and explore our campuses. 

Find out about courses, scholarships, pathways, and careers, and hear what University life is like from the experts: our students, staff, and graduates. There will be presentations, fun activities, food, entertainment, and giveaways. 

We want to make sure you leave us inspired and supported to begin study.
