What's on at ANU Open Day 2016

Open Day 2016 »

Plan your ANU Open Day

Pre-plan and get the most out of Open Day 2016. Browse the sessions below and think about the information that will be most important in helping you make decisions about uni.

What questions are running through your mind?

  • If I study art history, what are my career options?
  • I'm interested in the Bachelor of Philosophy program. How can do I decide where to focus my research?
  • What's the benefit of doing a Vertical Double Degree like the Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics, coupled with the Juris Doctor?
  • I want to live on campus. Do I need to receive an offer to study at ANU before I can apply for accommodation?

Write them down as they come to you and bring them along on the day.

The Program is packed with activities that cover these questions and more. Use the Open Day App (coming soon!) to choose the activities that most interest you and develop your own Open Day Program. Remember too that the ANU School of Art and the ANU School of Music are open all day. So creative types, jot these down on your list of must-do activities now.

Don't miss a thing

We will continue to update the Program with new sessions. Check back regularly or better still, register for updates.
