There will be a buzz in the air when Western Sydney University holds its first open day since the pandemic on Sunday, August 14.
With plenty to see, learn and do, prospective students can get a first-hand look at why Western Sydney University was recently named number one in the world for its social, ecological and economic impact by the prestigious Times Higher Education Impact rankings.
As part of the return-to-campus celebrations, WSU is opening up its new $300 million engineering innovation hub in Parramatta for the first time.
The technology infused vertical campus is focused on innovation in engineering, architecture and the built environment and delivering world-class education, research and collaboration with business and industry.
Visitors to Open Day 2022 can expect a warm and welcoming atmosphere with food trucks, live music, prizes and giveaways, interactive displays and chill-out spaces, together with helpful course advice, opportunities to talk with current students and lecturers, and tours of state of the art teaching and research facilities.
Panel discussions featuring current students will provide helpful tips and advice about the student experience, and there will also be plenty of opportunities to find out more about the huge range of student clubs and societies on offer at WSU.
Those considering upskilling or switching careers can find out more about the university’s wide range of flexible, industry-relevant credentials and short courses that best suit their professional needs, while school leavers can learn about early offer pathways like the highly successful HSC True Reward program.
Friendly faces on hand to help people get the most out of their open day experience include students like Nicola Lopino, who is currently studying a Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours).
“I would absolutely recommend that people attend open day at Western – and not just high school students, but anyone considering tertiary study,’’ Ms Lopino said.
“After the challenges of the past few years, it is an exciting opportunity to see university life back in full swing on campus, and one of the best ways to help prospective students gain a clear vision of their potential,” said Nicola.
