Dare to Dream

Dreaming about taking the next step and pursuing further education is totally different to actually doing it.
This is a daunting new chapter in life that’s going to be challenging and exciting all at once.

If you’ve been studying hard, saving up and/or first in your family to experience life at university there are a lot of decisions to make (no pressure!).

There are ways to get help, test the waters and get answers to those niggling questions that have been on your mind lately.

All universities host open days throughout the year; ideal for students, parents and high school groups.

It’s a chance to explore your potential university, see student accommodation, take a tour of the campus, see what lecture halls and facilities you may be using, ask questions and so much more. It’s an eye-opening opportunity, even if in the end you decide uni isn’t what you want to pursue.

Here we’ve compiled a list our CEF university partners’ 2019 open day dates.

By clicking through the links below and registering for an open day, you go into the draw for great prizes as well as receiving essential information for the day (with the odd app to help you fully immerse yourself). There’s the chance to win a $15,000 scholarship and some serious kit just for registering, as well as the opportunity to get your travel covered.

Don’t forget to share this list with your parents and mates to make a date. There’s no excuse not to chase your dreams now!
