Tertiary Open Day to continue for next three years

12 March 2014

The Australian National University has joined five other Canberra institutions to commit to a jointly-run Tertiary Open Day over the next three years.

ANU Vice-Chancellor, Professor Ian Young AO, signed a new agreement on the open day with representatives from the University of New South Wales, the Australian Defence Force Academy, the Australian Catholic University, Canberra Institute of Technology and the University of Canberra.

"The Tertiary Open Day's popularity continues to grow with students from Canberra, interstate and overseas wanting to see what our institutions have to offer," Professor Young says.

"It makes sense for ANU to be a key partner in an event that helps future students make decisions about their career paths."

Tertiary Open Day allows students to make one visit to Canberra from interstate, making it more convenient for them when choosing where they'd like to study and what they'd like to do.

It's the sixth MOU to be signed by the institutions and will cover Tertiary Open Days for the next three years.
