Live information sessions

Learn more about the degrees you're interested in studying by asking questions during our live information sessions.

But before you join a session, make sure you check out the videos on offer about your preferred study areas – they cover all the essential information about the degrees, so you can spend more time hearing from academics about detailed highlights of the programs at USC.

We have lots of different study areas to choose from, so you can pick the ones that are right for you.

Each 30 minute session will run twice during the day, so if you miss the first session, you can always jump in the second one.

The sessions start at either:

  • 10am and 11.30am or
  • 10.45am and 12.15pm

Useful tips

One of the most important parts of our Open Day online is the live information sessions – where you get to ask our expert lecturers and students all your questions about studying at USC. The sessions will run for 30 minutes.

  • Make sure you've downloaded Zoom before Open Day – you'll need it for the live information sessions
  • After you've told us a bit about yourself, we'll provide you with a personalised Open Day plan so you can get the most out of your experience
  • Your Open Day plan suggests a journey for you to explore the Open Day site. But you can explore on your own at any time
  • Have a look at the other content on offer in your Open Day plan before the live information sessions start
  • You'll need at least 30 minutes to have a look at other content available before you join a live information session
  • Take a few notes while you're making your way through your Open Day plan so that you can refer back to them later
