Future students will be able to find out everything they need to know about The University of Western Australia at this year’s Open Day on Sunday 9 August, from 10am to 4pm.
Students, their parents and families are invited to meet University staff and students to find out more about the UWA educational and student experience while enjoying the beautiful Crawley campus.
This year there will be a “Future Students Hub” on James Oval where students are invited to start their pursuit before heading out into study areas, labs and faculty displays. Staff at the Hub will be able to answer questions and provide information on admission, scholarships, courses, majors, career options and student life.
Representatives from UWA Guild clubs, along with current students, will be available to answer queries and talk about uni life.
This year’s Open Day will also feature the UWA Student Experience Talk in the Octagon Theatre at 11.15am and 1.15pm. UWA Deputy Vice-Chancellor Professor Alec Cameron will discuss why a UWA education is world-class and students will share their experiences of being a first-year student at UWA.
All members of the community are invited to enjoy the entertainment and activities throughout the day, including a mini Perth Upmarket, live music performances, carnival rides, petting zoos, specialty food trucks, campus tours and the Radio 92.9 Hit Zone with a live DJ and carnival games.
There will be plenty of sporting matches, a climbing wall and the chance to meet athletes from Perth Glory, Perth Lynx and Rugby WA.
For selfie-lovers, posting photos to #UWAOpenDay could win them a prize and they can pick up free printed photos from the Instaprint booth on James Oval. There will also be some “impossible” photo opportunities around campus to amaze and inspire – perfect for sharing on social media.
There’s so much to discover, experience and enjoy at UWA Open Day. Visit the website, create your own program and go in the draw to win a $1500 Apple Store voucher and many other great prizes.
