University Open Days 2021
Open Day Advice
Open Days are held at most Victorian Universities and TAFEs throughout Term 3. Attending an Open Day is the best way to find out first-hand about a course or University/TAFE. Make sure you go!
What is Open Day?
On Open day, a university opens its doors to anyone who is interested in attending their university in the future, or who would just like to know more about the institution. You can talk with academics, lecturers, and current students about what certain courses are actually like, and what is required to get into them. University Open Days are well worth attending because they can help you make one of life’s important decisions. They usually occur on weekends during Term 3 of the school year.
