Attending a Murdoch Open Day is a great way for your teen to get a feel for what it will be like to attend university.

Is your teenager thinking about going to uni? For some, it’s an easy decision. For others, the idea of uni can feel abstract, and they may be unsure.

Attending an Open Day is a good way to learn about campus life, in a no-pressure environment.

What is Open Day?

In general, an Open Day is a chance for students to dive in and get a feel for what it will be like to attend a university. It’s a time when your teen can freely wander around the campus to find out what’s on offer, see the classrooms, and check out the things that help shape student life, like the library, cafes, common areas and even the tav. It’s also an opportunity to meet current students and find out more about different study programs and extracurricular activities.

Why go to Murdoch Open Day?

Held on Saturday, 23 March, Murdoch Uni's Open Day offers your teen the chance to immerse themselves in campus life for a day. They will be welcomed into the Murdoch community and provided with all the info they need to know about studying at uni.

Your teen will also get a chance to chat with academics, join a guided tour and meet other students. 

If your teen is uncertain about what they want to do, Murdoch Open Day provides an excellent opportunity for them to discover courses they may not have considered and prime their imagination for a future career.

Will my teen learn anything at Open Day?

Regardless of how your teen experiences Open Day, it will provide them a chance to learn about different entry pathways and what courses are on offer, and they’ll get to know the campus. Attending Open Day will also help them feel more comfortable and confident on their first day of studies. 

If your teenager is thinking about university, encourage them to attend Murdoch’s Open Day and plan to go with them. It’s a positive step in the transition from high school to uni, and a chance for you to start a conversation about career planning. It’s also a good way for your teen to experience Murdoch first hand to determine if it is the right fit for them.
