Make a date with Edith Cowan University (ECU) on Sunday, 18 July for the annual Open Day at the Joondalup Campus.
This free event is a great chance for prospective students and their families to explore course and career options, get a feel for the campus, take part in hands-on activities and find out what life is really like at ECU.
Future students can speak to staff and current students about ECU courses, chat one-on-one with lecturers and go behind-the-scenes to see ECU’s world-class learning facilities.
Hands-on science experiments, engineering activities, robotics displays, leadership challenges, eye-opening criminology and flight simulators and many other interactive activities will be held throughout the day.
There are fantastic prizes to be won at the Student Experience Zone, including the chance to win a Winter European Holiday Package for two, courtesy of Contiki Holidays.
They’ll also be information sessions about the admissions process, fees, scholarships and alternative entry pathways, as well as personal stories from past ECU students.
Race cars designed by ECU Motorsport students will be on display, and visitors will be given the chance to drive around Barbagallo Raceway in one of our racing simulators.
Physics and chemistry labs will be running impressive practical demonstrations and our criminology staff will help you pick the criminal.
Student Exchange will give you an insight into the variety of travel and study opportunities available with our exchange schools around the world.
There’s the Kids’ Zone for the young at heart, and the Impact Zone, where you can find out the impact your choices can have on your health and the environment.
There will also be plenty of roaming entertainment throughout the day from funk band, The Junkadelic Collective to performance group, The Lion Dancers.
Open Day at ECU’s Joondalup Campus runs from 10.00am to 3.00pm on Sunday, 18 July. The Mount Lawley Campus, including WAAPA, will be open to the public on Sunday, 25 July
