Open your possibilities at Western Sydney University Open Day
No matter what career you're interested in, Open Day 2016 at Western Sydney University's Parramatta campus has plenty to offer, including more than 100 presentations across the day and one-on-one course advising sessions with academics.
Students can learn more about our exciting new courses for next year, including the Bachelor of Entrepreneurship (Game Design and Simulation), Bachelor of Creative Industries and Bachelor of Medical Science (Forensic Mortuary Practice).
There'll be plenty of interactive fun, including the unveiling of Sydney's newest planetarium for students with a love of science and space.
The Western Sydney University planetarium is an elevated 8-meter wide dome that simulates the galaxy and allows visitors to explore the wonders of the solar system, no matter the weather.
There'll also be game-playing robots, a science magic show, our outside broadcast van, and reptiles galore.
The University's high-tech facilities will also be on show, including the new $220.5 million flagship high-rise campus in the Parramatta CBD, One Parramatta Square, and a sneak peek at the new $30 million state-of-the-art science building at Parramatta.
