COVID-19 has changed many things including the August tradition of year 12 students and their parents driving across the state visiting university open days.
So Federation University will hold its first Virtual Open Day online from 10am to 4pm on Sunday to give prospective students and their parents an insight in to studying in Ballarat and its other campuses.
Fed Uni marketing director Liz Quinn manager said the virtual open day would feature more than 100 live chats with expert staff, 360-degree campus tours of campuses and their sporting and accommodation facilities, and targeted content for VTAC, mature-age and postgraduate students.
There will also be a student ambassador chat lounge where prospective students can ask questions about what it is like to study and/or live on campus. Course-specific webinars will introduce students to courses on offer, including allied health, education, engineering and information technology.
