Get yourself prepped
Here are a few tips to help get you ready for your university Open Day.
On-campus Open Day
Do I have to register to attend Open Day 2022 or can I just turn up on the day? chevron_right
Everyone attending Open Day will have to register. Getting in early and registering before the event means you can best plan your Open Day experience and secure your spot for the sessions you’d like to attend.
To keep you safe, each session and tour will have limited places available, though many of our sessions and tours will run at numerous times during Open Day. If your preferred spot is fully booked, make sure you check out other time slots.
We will also be taking registrations on the day and everyone will have to check-in on arrival. We are taking this precaution as part of our COVID Safe event plan and to ensure we’re following government guidelines.
Do I need to book in for Open Day information sessions? chevron_right
Planning your Open Day is super easy! Hop online to select what info sessions you’d like to attend and the tours you’d like to take. Remember to get in quick because info sessions and tours will have limited places available – make sure you secure your spot.
Do my friends and family who are coming along have to register? chevron_right
You can bring parents, carers, friends, teachers – whoever you like – to Open Day!
If you’re planning to bring family or friends – and they’re over 16 years of age – make sure they register separately. Due to social distancing requirements, only people who have booked for each info session and/or tour will be allowed in.
Want to go to a different session to your parent/friend/child? Just select your own sessions and tours when you register.
If you’re bringing young children, select the ‘dependents’ option when you register for Open Day – because we have to count everyone who’ll be joining us for the day.
I’ve registered to attend Open Day, but haven’t received a confirmation email. What should I do? chevron_right
I’m in Years 9, 10 or 11. Can I come to Open Day? chevron_right
Absolutely! It’s never too early to visit us and explore what’s possible at Charles Sturt. And we can give you advice about how to make the most of high school to get you into your ideal course.
What are you doing to keep attendees safe in terms of COVID-19? chevron_right
Your safety is our number one priority. We’re taking all appropriate measures to keep our prospective students, their families and our community and staff safe. These include adhering to safe hygiene practices, encouraging social distancing, regular cleaning, staggered timings for pre-booked information sessions and tours, and monitoring numbers in communal areas.
What should I wear? chevron_right
Comfy clothes – but remember to dress for the weather and also wear comfy shoes if you’re going on a tour. And if you’re planning on doing a tour of our laboratories, you’ll need closed-in shoes.
Will my photo be taken? chevron_right
We’ll have photographers and videographers on campus capturing all the fun of the day – so there’s a chance you might be snapped. Make sure you let us know at the welcome tent if you don’t want your photo taken.
I have access requirements. Is Open Day accessible for me? chevron_right
Definitely. All of our buildings are accessible by ramps, and accessible toilets will also be marked on our maps. If you need extra assistance on the day, our friendly team will be happy to help.
What time should I arrive? chevron_right
Your Open Day kicks off at 10am. That’s when you can wander around the displays and community stalls, get involved in the activities, or tuck into some food. If you’ve signed on for an info session or campus tour that starts at 10am, it’s a good idea to arrive at 9.45am. (Check your program – in the confirmation email – to see what time you’re booked into sessions and tours.)
Where do I go when I arrive? chevron_right
When you arrive on campus, head towards the welcome tent. There will be heaps of signs, so you won’t miss it.
