Preparing for Open Day
Here are a few tips to help you get ready for Open Day.
What time should I arrive? chevron_right
We’ll publish detailed programs here shortly, so keep an eye on this space.
Help – I need directions! chevron_right
Don’t worry – we’ve created maps to help you get to where you need to be. Head to your campus’ event page and download your campus map.
Where should I park? chevron_right
Once you arrive in the main gates, follow the signage to the event parking. Want to know the best bit? Parking is free!
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!
Can I talk to academics about courses? chevron_right
Absolutely. We’ll have academics on hand to give you one-to-one advice about where you want your career to go – and the best course to get you there.
Do I need to book in for Open Day information sessions? chevron_right
No need. You can just turn up. But make sure you try to get there a little early to get a seat.
Can I see inside the facilities and accommodation? chevron_right
Of course! There will be tours of our learning spaces, social spaces and accommodation.
Who can I bring along with me? chevron_right
Parents, carers, friends, teachers – whoever you like. Open Day (as the name suggests) is open to everyone!
Do I need to bring lunch? chevron_right
Nope – we’re shouting lunch. We’ll have food hubs on campus where you can purchase something extra, in case you get hungry throughout the day.
What should I wear? chevron_right
Whatever you like. But we do suggest dressing for the weather and wearing 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.
Can I bring my dog? chevron_right
Assistance animals are welcome, but other furry friends are best left at home.
Do I need to bring anything along? chevron_right
Just yourself! We’ll take care of everything else.
Will there be entertainment on the day? chevron_right
Heaps! There will be live music, free food and activities for kids. You’ll have a blast.
I have a disability. Is Open Day accessible for me? chevron_right
Definitely. All of our buildings are accessible by ramps, and if you need extra assistance, our friendly team will be happy to help.
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’m in Years 9, 10 or 11. Can I come to Open Day? chevron_right
Absolutely! Everyone is welcome, and we can give you advice about how to make the most of high school to get you into your ideal course.
If I’m travelling, where can I stay? chevron_right
I can’t make it to Open Day. What are my options? chevron_right
We’d love to still welcome you on campus! All you need to do is book a campus tour for any day of the working week. You can also book a one-on-one appointment with a student adviser to talk through your study options.
