2010 Open Day Lawn

The University of Western Sydney 2013 Open Day is set to be the most fun, interactive and insightful yet, with all members of the community encouraged to come and experience life at UWS on Sunday 1 September at the Parramatta campus.

One of the star attractions on the day will be the UWS Solar Car Team and their newly finished solar powered vehicle 'SolAce' – the first of its kind to be developed for the World Solar Challenge in Western Sydney. The team will be available for interviews and photographs, and are looking forward to sharing the 'SolAce' news with prospective students and the greater community.

  • Moot courts by current law students and academics
  • Reptiles display
  • Tech Ally featuring 3D printing, go-cart racing and robots
  • Live filming of the Television Sydney (TVS) show 'Why Gen'
  • Performance by UWS Bachelor of Music student and star of the 2012 season of The Voice, Viktoria Bolonina
  • Displays, course information and one-on-one advice for prospective students of all areas of study
  • The 'Speak to a Current Student' tent
  • Information and advice for parents

UWS Open Day will be held on the Parramatta campus on Sunday 1 September from 10.00am until 2.00pm.

There will be free regular shuttle buses from Rosehill Racecourse where parking will be available, and also from Parramatta station for those travelling by public transport.

Prospective students are encouraged to attend UWS Open Day to have all of their questions about studying at UWS in 2014 answered.
