Open Days will soon return to Charles Sturt University, with this year’s events taking place in a virtual format for the first time.
Prospective students and their families are invited to attend four virtual Charles Sturt Open Days, which will offer information and advice about studying with the University.
The first three Open Day events will take place between Tuesday 15 to Thursday 17 September, with the last event scheduled for Saturday 26 September. A full program with session start times is available on the Charles Sturt Open Day web page.
Charles Sturt Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Students) Ms Jenny Roberts (pictured) said this year’s virtual Open Days will still be as informative as ever and are a valuable opportunity for prospective students to learn more about what the University has to offer.
“The Charles Sturt University Open Days provide an opportunity for prospective students to get a glimpse into what university life is like and discover all of the possibilities that are open to them at Charles Sturt University,” she said.
“Research across the higher education sector indicates that Open Days are a key touchpoint and milestone in a future student’s decision-making journey.
“For prospective students, Open Days can provide reassurance that Charles Sturt University will provide them with the right experiences and connection.
“For parents, they provide peace of mind about their child’s study environment, as well as the chance to feel involved in their child’s decision.”
Ms Roberts said the Open Days are particularly important this year as the COVID-19 pandemic has had a big impact on Year 12 students and many might be concerned about their options after school.
“Our Open Days will include a lot of information about admission and pathways to university, including how we have expanded our participation in the Schools Recommendation Schemes, which assists students to use their Year 11 results and recommendations from their school to enrol in university courses,” she said.
“We’ve also planned a number of interactive information sessions on all of our different courses, including health and medicine, agriculture, education, business, law, communications, engineering, and information technology, to name a few.
“With this year’s Open Day events being held online for the first time, we hope that an even larger number of prospective students can attend and take advantage of the opportunity to soak up as much knowledge and ask as many questions as they can.”
The Open Days will include interactive information sessions about Charles Sturt’s courses, scholarship offerings, and university life as well as video tours of the University’s campuses, facilities and accommodation options.
To attend the Open Day events, registrations must be made via the Charles Sturt Open Days webpage. Instructions on how to access the Open Days are also available on this page.
