Make the mostof Open Day!

There’s plenty to see and do.
Here’s how to make the most of your Open Day experience.

Bring a support person

Open Day is busy and exciting, and there’s lots of information to take in. Bring along a support person who can remind you of key questions you want answered – and our checklist will help here, too.

To ensure we have enough room for everyone, we ask that you only bring one support person into each session.

Check in when you arrive

Visit the check-in tent when you arrive so our friendly staff can show you how to get the most out of your day.

You’ll receive a checklist and a map and advice on where to go and which information sessions to attend throughout the day.

Attend an information session

No matter how you’re feeling about university, USC has got you covered. Our information sessions will include stories, tips and advice from people who’ve been where you are now and are happy to share their experiences.

Choose your degree sessions

These sessions will give you an overview of the programs and career opportunities on offer at USC. If you have any questions from the degree sessions, they can be answered by our staff at the Info Hub.

Visit the Info Hub

Our lecturers and tutors will be on hand throughout the event to answer questions about the programs and courses you’re interested in. You can also chat to our Student Central team about how to apply, scholarships, studying overseas and more.
