Open Days for Universities and TAFE

Visiting an Australian University, TAFE or College on one of the student Open Days is the perfect opportunity to get the answers to all the questions you have about the various degrees, diplomas, programs, study options, departments, student life, accommodation, living costs and much more.

An Open Day is a great way for you to get a feel for a place that could become your home away from home for the next few years.

The Australian Education Network provides information on such events Australia-wide.  The dates thus far available may assist you in planning ahead for time to visit institutions as a family. This information is updated on the website.  The links below are a very good starting point for you.
