This year Open Day at Southern Cross University isn’t just a day; it’s a whole month.

Kicking off on Friday July 16, the virtual Open Day 2021 gives future students access to special on-demand content so they can discover the best degrees for them in a time that suits. The University’s study experts will be on online chat to offer specialised advice and help.

Current students will share what it’s like to study here and what they think about their course.

Plus, our academic experts and lecturers will be hosting live online information sessions for courses where future students can ask specific study questions in real time. These live sessions are scheduled for Tuesday August 10 and Thursday August 12.

Anyone registering for Open Day (for a month) has the opportunity to win an Open Day Scholarship worth $15,000.

Mr Ben Roche, Vice President (Engagement), said the virtual Open Day was the perfect platform to explore study areas, hear from current students, chat to study experts and take an immersive 360-degree campus tour.

“Southern Cross University is making it simple for anyone, anywhere to discover the distinctive courses we have on offer. Our lives are increasingly busy and unpredictable, yet selecting the best degree and study location can be a life-changing decision. We’re here to make that decision-making process easier for you,” said Mr Roche.

“Our virtual month-long Open Day gives everyone access to the best decision-making material in a very flexible way, at a time that works for you.”

Open Day (for a month) is live from Friday July 16 to Sunday August 15.
