That’s a shame, but it doesn’t mean you have to totally miss out! We’ll be live streaming at various campuses throughout the day, so you can go online and check things out as if you were really there. There'll be more information about this when the Open Day online planner is launched in mid-June.
You’re also welcome to visit our campus at any time during the year or attend one of our many other events for students.
We recommend completing our Open Day registration form so we can keep in touch with you in the lead-up to Open Day. We'll provide you with tips to help you plan your day and highlight activities we think you may be interested in.
This can be a really difficult time for students as they try to navigate the huge range of courses available to them. To help them figure out what the best path might be, try asking them some open-ended questions that will encourage them to think about their passions, strengths and goals.
- What do you love doing most?
- What are you best at?
- Which careers appeal to you?
- What would you like to achieve by the time you're 30?
- Do you know what's on offer? It's not just about courses – what about study abroad opportunities, leadership programs, and recreational activities.
- Have you completed, or are you completing, the right VCE subjects?
From there, you can make a shortlist together, and decide on some back-up options in case your child doesn’t get into their first course or university preference. Remember, while this is an important decision, many people change their career paths a number of times throughout their life. That’s why at Monash we equip our students with critical skills sought after by employers like communication, problem-solving and leadership, as well as the more techinical ones.
