ACU Open Day Canberra Ballarat 2016

Find out what you can study at ACU and what’s involved at Open Day events in Canberra and Ballarat this weekend.

Planning on visiting an Open Day at ACU in Canberra on Saturday 27 August or Ballarat on Sunday 28 August? There's plenty to see and do.

Open Day isn’t about us, it’s about you. That’s what makes it special – it’s everything you need, in one place, to make your decision. Here are five things you can do to make the most of it:

1. Check out the Neuromedic experience

Control technology with your mind! People who trial the Neuromedic experience will find themselves as the leading paramedic at the scene of a motor vehicle accident. Neuromedic detects the brain’s instinctive responses to prompts within the narrative to determine what happens to two injured patients. As you respond your stress levels are monitored to determine how the scenario will play out.

Watch the Neuromedic experience in action

2. Register for perks

Get Open Day updates and go in the draw to win a $5000 study trip to Rome! The prize money can go towards travel expenses such as air fares, accommodation, local transfers, excursions and more.

3. Take a general campus tour

Get an insider’s view on life at ACU by touring the campus with a current student. The guided tours will highlight key locations for students and your guide will share their stories and experiences along the way.

4. Take a facilities tour

Whether you are thinking exercise science, physio, education, health sciences or theology you can check out the high-tech facilities and equipment used in class during tours led by the students who use all that cool stuff.

5. Visit the student association

Visit the ACU Student Association and discover how they support, advocate and represent the student body, as well as coordinate social and recreational activities. You may also be able to nab a free sausage if you are lucky!

6. Chat to current students

Hear firsthand about uni life and get the inside-scoop on studying at ACU. They were in your shoes not so long ago, so the chances are they will have thought about the questions you’re eager to ask.

Remember if you don't get all your questions answered on the Open Day itself, you can still contact ACU at a later date. We would love to hear from you!
