OPEN DAY 2020

Experience Monash from home
Saturday 29 – Monday 31 August

What to expect
at Open Day

At Monash, making change is not just what we do, it's who we are. This year, we're changing the way we deliver Open Day to you. We've flipped Open Day on its head to bring you an interactive digital experience over three days:
  • Saturday 29 August, 10am – 2pm
  • Sunday 30 August, 10am – 2pm 
  • Monday 31 August, 4–7pm

To get the most from your experience, we recommend using a laptop or desktop.

Sure, we're changing the way you access Open Day but we’re keeping the things that make Monash Open Days so iconic.

You'll still have the flexibility to personalise your experience to match your interests and the freedom to explore at your own pace, but now from the comfort and convenience of your own home.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is Open Day?

We're so excited to bring you a digital Open Day experience that this year we'll be hosting Open Day over three days:

  • Saturday 29 August, 10am – 2pm
  • Sunday 30 August, 10am – 2pm
  • Monday 31 August, 4–7pm

We'll be offering the same live sessions and live chat opportunities on multiple days, so you'll have the flexibility to tune in when it's most convenient for you. Whether you attend a single day or dip in and out over all three, the choice is yours.

Do I have to register to attend?

Yes, you will need to register to access Open Day. Closer to the day, we'll send you a link you can use to log in to the event with your email address and password. We'll also be in touch with reminders, insider tips and sneak peeks in the lead up.

The best bit? You won't need to register or reserve your place at individual sessions. By registering once, you'll have more than 280 activities at your fingertips across three days.

Who can attend Open Day?

We've gone digital this Open Day which means anyone can attend – no matter where you are in the world! If you're thinking of studying at university next year or in the future, then Monash Open Day is custom-built for you.

Most of our visitors are Year 10, 11 and 12 students, but you’ll also find info about graduate study and mature-age learning. We encourage parents or anyone involved in your study journey to join us too.

What device should I use on the day?

You can use any device to attend – mobile, tablet, or laptop/desktop. All that's required is access to the internet.

To get the most from your experience, we recommend using a laptop or desktop and allowing pop-ups in your internet browser. You won't need to download any specific software.

What should I do at Open Day?

With so much going on at Open Day (280+ sessions across three days!), we've made it easy for you to plan ahead. Browse our schedule and keep track of the activities that interest you.

One of the many upsides to a digital Open Day is that you won't have to worry about rushing across campus for your next session or the weather ruining your plans – which means you can fit more into your day!

As a starting point, we recommend:

  • tuning into the Make change with Monash webinar
  • live chatting with our students and staff to get all your questions answered
  • stopping by our info booths to discover more about courses, support services and student life
  • collecting course guides and brochures in your swag bag which you can then email to yourself for future reading

Still unsure? That's completely fine too! Turn up on the day and our student ambassadors and staff will guide you.

Will there be information about all courses at Open Day?

Definitely! It's one of the main reasons people attend Monash Open Day.

Course experts from each of our ten faculties will be on hand to talk to you about all things course related including prerequisites, pathways, double degrees, career outcomes, work placements and flexible study options.

Can I speak to students and staff?

Absolutely! Just like our physical Open Days, there'll be loads of opportunities for you to get all your questions answered by students, alumni, academics and support services staff. You can speak to us one-on-one or attend an interactive info session.

As a result of COVID-19, will there be changes to entry requirements?

We know Year 12 looks very different this year. We're doing everything we can to make sure our entry requirements remain fair and equitable for all students.

If you’ve been negatively impacted by remote learning, you can submit a Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) application in VTAC after adding in your course preferences.

Along with the Monash Guarantee, SEAS can help you get into your preferred course, even if your ATAR is below the lowest selection rank.

I may need financial assistance to help with the cost of study. What are my options?

There are plenty of options to help with the costs of study so you can focus on making the most of your university experience.

We offer more than 400 different types of scholarships that recognise disadvantage and reward talent. As one of the most generous scholarship programs in Australia, you may be more eligible than you think.

Government payments such as Youth Allowance, Austudy, ABSTUDY, the student start-up loan and relocation scholarship are available for eligible students.

If you’re enrolled in a Commonwealth Supported Place you may also be eligible for a HELP loan for all or part of your course fees.

As a parent, how can I help my child find the right course?

Year 12 is a challenging time for many students and their families. We've developed an online resource for parents to help you support your child as they navigate courses and career options.

We know the future of work is changing at a rapid pace. At Monash, we equip students with the critical skills sought after by employers like communication, problem-solving, resilience and leadership.
