Get ready for Open Day

Breadcrumbs

When you’re thinking about uni, we know there’s lots to consider.

Open Day is the perfect opportunity to get your questions answered. But first, it helps to know what you should ask!

We're here to help you make the most of Open Day, so you leave with the info (and inspo) you need.

1. All about degrees

One of the biggest uni-related decisions you’ll make is what degree to study. You might have already made up your mind – if so, that’s great! Or maybe you have no idea. That’s okay, too. Open Day is the perfect place to explore your study options, or make sure you’re headed down the right path for you.

Before Open Day
  • ☑ Think about yourself! First, spend some time thinking about your interests, the way you like to learn (or the school subjects you most enjoy), and the types of work you might like to do in future. To get started, check out our tips for choosing a degree.

  • ☑ Do some research. Use the USC website to explore different study areas. Make some notes about which degrees you’re interested in and any questions you want to ask on Open Day.

  • ☑ Learn about different study skills. Going to uni is a new experience, and it might involve different types of study than what you're used to. But you won't be alone! There are plenty of workshops and activities to help you boost your study skills and get off to a good start. From maths to writing, notetaking to referencing, find out about the academic and study support on offer at USC.
At Open Day
  • ☑ Talk to lecturers and students. The Info Hub will be open from 9am to 1pm. This is where you can ask one-on-one questions about the degrees you’re interested in. Here are some good things to ask:

    • What topics will be covered in the first semester?

    • Will I do an internship or go on placement in this degree?

    • What kinds of assignments will there be?

    • What sets this degree apart from the same program at other unis?

2. Getting into uni

How do prerequisites work? What if you haven't studied for a while? We know you have plenty of questions about getting into uni and how to apply.

Before Open Day
  • ☑ Find out about getting in. To be eligible to receive an offer to study at USC, you'll need to meet the entry requirements for your chosen degree. You must:

  • ☑ Research the entry requirements for your chosen degree/s. You'll find these on each degree's webpage. Look for prerequisites, minimum selection thresholds, and any special entry requirements. Make a note of these for Open Day (they'll also be in the study guide you receive on the day.) 

At Open Day
  • ☑ Come along to an All About Uni presentation. This will give you all the info you need on how to apply, so you’re ready to submit your QTAC application. We'll have a presentation for students coming to uni straight from high school, and one for mature-age students or people who've taken a gap year (or three!). Check the Open Day schedule for details on the presentation that best suits you.

  • ☑ Get one-on-one advice from our Student Central team. Once you have an idea of the entry requirements for the degrees you're interested in, you can talk with our Admissions team in the Info Hub to check whether you’re on track.

  • ☑ Find out about pathways to uni. Need info on alternative entry options? Stop by our Pathways tent to talk about bridging courses, diplomas and more.
3. Uni life
  • ☑ Follow #LifeatUSC on social media. Want to know what it's like to study at USC? Check out our Facebook and Instagram (@usc.australia) for an inside look.

  • ☑ Discover Student Wellbeing. Uni life isn't just about study! Explore ways to stay physically and mentally healthy while you're at uni.

  • ☑ Talk with our Scholarships team about financial support to help you study.
