Come along to UNSW’s Open Day on Saturday 6 September and experience the university up close, discover your perfect degree program and see what campus life has to offer.
There are lots of fun activities to explore as well as live music and exhibitions. Watch the world cup-winning robot soccer team in action, follow the sun with the solar thermal technology demonstration, or ride a Segway.
Or perhaps play judge in our state of the art moot court, see a 3D printer in action, check out UNSW’s world-record breaking solar car or visit the Museum of Human Disease. Other highlights include the rifle drill in the University Mall and a live video wall.
“It's the one day of the year when we get the chance to open our doors, from lecture theatres to labs and flipped classroom spaces,” says Chez Orchard, events manager with UNSW’s Future Students office.
Ms Orchard encourages visitors to use the planner tool on the UNSW Open Day website and to register online to receive updates on events and activities. “Students can ‘share’ the lectures they are planning to attend on Facebook, so their friends can also attend,” she says.
Five tips for preparing for Open Day:
1. Research – search the UNSW website for information on degrees, areas of study and career opportunities and make a list of questions you want answered.
2. Make a plan – create a personalised timetable and share it with friends via Facebook to make sure you all get seats in the same lecture.
3. Don’t get lost, get the app – download the UNSW Map app free from your app store for quick directions to lectures and a full list of activities.
4. First stop – make your first stop the Scientia Advisory Centre. Here you can pick up an event bag, which has everything you’ll need to have a successful, informative and fun day.
5. Chat to students – who better to get tips and information from than those who have gone before you. Find anyone in an ‘Ask Me’ t-shirt and get chatting.
