If you’re fortunate enough to have a child that knows exactly what course and university they want to study at, you can breathe a sigh of relief.

If you’re not so fortunate, Griffith University’s Open Day on Sunday 12 August is the ideal opportunity for aspiring uni students to explore their options, get a feel for the campus, talk to lecturers and hear from students about what study at Griffith is like.

To maximise the value of your campus visit, you should ask your child to fill out our online Open Day planner at Griffith Open Day webpage.

With over 240 information sessions, tours and activities across our Gold Coast, Nathan and South Bank campuses, there’s a lot to see.

Open Day crowdsThe planner allows you to select what you want to see and then receive all the important information about sessions and tours in a customised email.

If your child has already narrowed down the study area or degree they are interested in, the planner will show you when the tours and talks are on.
There are even tours of the accommodation facilities if living on campus is a preferred option.

Also, by registering there is the chance to win one of three Microsoft Surface Pro tablets.
