Will we see you at Open Day?

Date: 28/08/2009

The University of Western Sydney will be throwing open its doors to thousands of prospective students and members of the community for UWS Open Day at the Parramatta campus, this Sunday 30 August, 2009.

Open Day is an opportunity for students and their families to find out about the University's high-quality and career-ready courses, its world-class research, and cutting-edge equipment and teaching facilities across the UWS campuses.

It's also a chance to meet one-on-one with academics, and talk with helpful staff and current UWS students about career and study choices, and get a taste for what university life is really like.

The day will be inspiring, fun and practical, with over 100 presentations, workshops and interactive demonstrations organised.

Highlights will include:

* The opportunity to see the law come to life in the University's Moot Court.
* The chance to have a plaster cast applied by the University's medical students.
* The UWS science magic show.
* The 'Hawkesbury Lane' science display.
* The animal farm and reptile display.

There will also be competitions, sporting activities, food tasting, games and musical entertainment.

All of the University's courses and disciplines will be represented in the one central location, and visitors will have the opportunity to find out about UWS scholarships, postgraduate study and research, leadership programs for high achieving students, the University's application process, career and cooperative educational programs, sporting and social clubs, student exchange opportunities, and other student services.
