More than 22,000 people came to Open Day 2017. If you didn't make it, here’s a taste of what you missed.

Hypnotized by choices?

Thinking about careers and courses can really make your head spin.

Thankfully, renowned hypnotist and comedian, Matthew Hale was at Open Day to help people focus their minds (and make them laugh).

His presentations, ‘How to have a great career…by choice not chance’ we’re well-received at all three Open Days.

Time for a change?

Postgraduate study is a great option for people looking to enhance their employment opportunities or seeking a career change.

Some of our postgrad courses can be completed in only six months and professional work experience can count for entry.

At Open Day we offered advice and options on postgraduate courses, including research degrees.

If you couldn’t make it, find out more about postgraduate study at ECU.

Still haven't made up your mind?

Our super-popular Mind Reading Career Finder has helped a lot of people with study choices. The results can be pretty amazing!

At this year's Open Days, the Mind Reader again helped heaps of people who were unsure about what to study in 2018.
