University Open Days and Events 2021 - VIC/NSW/ACT/QLD

University Open Days 2021 - VIC/ NSW/ ACT/ QLD

It's that time of year again! Year 11 and 12 students are probably starting to think more deeply about their pathways and careers after high school, while universities are starting to advertise and spam inboxes of said worried students. I figured it'd probably high time I made yet another compilation of Open Days, though apologies for how late I've left it (just been v. busy offline). Also, sorry, I'll only be doing universities (i.e. any institute with "university" in their official name or well known) and will not be doing TAFE/ specialist colleges due to time constraints. For those who are new to ATARNotes, for the past few years, including COVID-ridden 2020 (see here for that), I've personally gone and compiled as many institutes as I possibly can into threads like this which means that you don't have to take ages trying to find so many, making your research a little less of a hassle. However (and this is a big but!), this is only a starting point and you should definitely do much more thorough research into your intended career and pathways.

Note: This list only includes some universities. If I missed one that you want to see or a link is dodgy, please let me know.
Note 2: Some unis exist over more than one state/ territory. I've put them under the state that their main campus is in, when this is the case.
Note 3: All events are subject to COVID-19 restrictions at time of event. As a result, some events may be online, others in person.
