Yes, Yes, and Yes
It's great to start thinking about and exploring your study options as early as possible, and as a part of this it is highly recommended that Year 11 students be active in attending Open Days, along with Year 10 and even Year 9 students if they want to get an early start.
Become Familiar With The Campus And Facilities
If you are in Years 9, 10, or 11 there is plenty to do at the Open Day events. At the very least it is a great opportunity to become familiar with and feel comfortable at some of the university campuses you might one day attend. This includes the physical layout of the campus itself, with some being quite large, along with stepping inside a lecture theatre or seminar room and checking out the facilities such as cafes and sporting facilities.
Narrow Down Your Study And Career Options
As you get closer to enrolling in university it will become more important to narrow down the areas of study or particular courses you might be interested in. By Year 11 you might be ready with some questions about courses and careers and even in Years 9 and 10 you can be asking questions and reading material for the information you will need to make a final decision some time in the not too distant future.
Bring Your Family Or Friends
There's no need to go on your own maybe a parent, guardian, or other family member might like to go with you to keep you company or to get a good idea about what your options are so as to help you in making a final decision when the time for that comes. Perhaps a friend or two can tag along with you it will open their eyes to higher education opportunities and you can also have some fun together after you have obtained the information you were after.
See you at the Open Day!
