Answers to Questions

Visiting an Australian University, TAFE or College on one of the student Open Days or info events is an excellent opportunity to get the answers to all the questions you have about,your future study plans.

Become Familiar with the Campus

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. Some university campuses can be large and scary places until you get to know them. Even a small, unfamiliar college can be intimidating until you visit and step inside. "Getting To Know You" can be your theme song as you visit somewhere new at an Open Day or info event.

Consider The Location And Travel

The location of a university or college relative to the student will determine travel times, modes of travel, and even housing if the student needs to move away from the family to attend. A slightly more appealing university or course on the other side of the city which requires a 1.5 to 2 hour trip each way might not be as good overall as something slightly less appealing but only 30 to 40 minutes away from where the student lives. Students can use the Open Day and info events to consider how the location, travel, living arrangements, and costs might impact on their study choices..
