Date:             Thursday 8 August

Time:            7.30 – 8.45pm

Please note that this is an evening for parents or guardians and students are not required to attend as they will receive the information at a level assembly. The format of the evening includes an overview of the VTAC application process with reference to interstate and overseas applications, the Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) and a presentation from the Deakin University Admissions team to provide insights into the transition process from school to tertiary study including advice for families.

Tertiary Open Days

The Year 10s, 11s and 12s have been emailed a list of Open Days and a copy is also saved on the Portal at Open Days are generally during the month of August so students should organise their visits by using the various Open Day Planners accessible via the links.

Some Tips to Maximise the Value from Open Days…

  • Check registration requirements prior to Open Days
  • Plan the day using the institution’s Open Day Guide which is available beforehand from their website. Be sure to make a note of the times of information sessions.
  • If a course includes an interview/folio presentation as part of the selection process (e.g. Design related courses), students may well be asked about experiences or impressions gained at Open Day.
  • Prepare questions for staff and students such as course requirements, industry placements, employment opportunities or study abroad opportunities.
  • Consider the general environment, for example, rural or urban, city or suburban, large or small, range of clubs or societies, student support services and transport.
