University of New England, Armidale

This year the University of New England is launching the very first Life at Altitude festival, with a jam-packed University Open Day followed by a thumping great show featuring live bands, fantastic food and heaps of free entertainment. If you’re thinking of going to university, here’s a few tips on University Open Days and studying at the University of New England.

What are University Open Days?

University Open Days are one of the most important dates in any university's annual calendar. It’s the day that universities have the opportunity to show themselves off to the thousands of prospective students and their parents who come and visit.

Why go to a University Open Day?

The main purpose of any University Open Day is to help prospective university students answer the important question of whether they would like to study at this university.

Determining whether a university is suitable for you can be a very difficult task and University Open Days go a long way to helping you make this important decision.

Do your Open Day research

This is very important if you want to maximise your time during your visit to any University Open Day. Take a look at the University of New England course and unit catalogue. Write it down and make sure you take it with you to the University Open Day.

Ask questions

Both students and staff at University Open Days are always friendly and approachable, so don’t be afraid to ask them a question! These students have already answered the question of whether 'this is the university for me?', so they are well placed to help you answer it as well.

Explore the University campus and have fun

You might be spending your next few years at the University of New England so you might as well check out the campus to really make sure you can call it home.

Like Life At Altitude, most University Open Days offer campus tours so make sure you go on one if available. The best thing about University Open Days is the festival atmosphere. So have fun! The bottom line is that University Open Days are whatever you make of them, make sure you enjoy it.

Thinking of Studying at the University of New England

The University of New England will set you apart from the rest, with a personal and flexible approach to learning. If you are unsure if you qualify to study, or would like information on credit for prior experience and studies, refer to pathways to studying at UNE website.

If you're new to the University Of New England and plan to study on campus, you typically apply through UAC or QTAC. If you are planning to study an undergraduate degree by distance, or have studied at UNE before and are returning to do postgraduate study, then you can apply online.
