2017 Open Days

Visiting an Australian University, TAFE or College on one of the student Open Days is the perfect opportunity to get a feel for a place and the answers to all the questions you have about various degrees, diplomas, programs, study options, departments, student life, accommodation, living costs and much, much more. These opportunities are invaluable for students from Year 10 through to Year 12.

It is sometimes necessary to forward plan for such trips on weekends, and so it would be most beneficial to keep an eye on this list. You could also phone an institution you were interested in and ask them directly for such information.
