Frequently asked questions
- Should I attend if I am interested in studying a Postgraduate course?

You may also like to consider booking a personalised campus tour at a time that suits you - you will be shown the campus of your choice and get to speak with staff about the course or courses you are interested in. To book your tour, please call us toll free on 1800 626 481.
- What should I bring with me on the day?
The NSW North Coast and Southern Queensland can present very hot or wet weather during December. For your comfort on the day and when moving between venues on campus, we suggest you may like to bring drinking water, a hat, sunscreen, and your umbrella depending on the weather forecast.

After this session, you will be ushered to the Course Information Sessions of your choice.
