Crowds flock to Launceston for the final 2017 Open Day

Enthusiastic crowds enjoyed all that was on offer over the weekend at the University of Tasmania’s Launceston Open Day.

This year’s Open Day gave visitors the chance to discover the driving forces of the campaign, A New State of Mind, including study programs that not only deliver world-class degrees, but also real-world skills and experiences.

Prospective students, families and the general public accessed information sessions, hands-on activities, demonstrations, displays, as well as plenty of good food and live entertainment.

At Inveresk, visitors were able to interact with the School of Architecture and Design’s ‘Illusion’ – a three-dimensional structure – as it took shape on site; take part in a life-drawing marathon; learn how to screen print at the textiles printing activity and delve into the Interactive Design Expo.

Highlights at the Newnham campus included ‘Abandon ship!’ scenarios; cycling to good health at the blender bike bonanza and the opportunity to sail into Sydney Harbour with AMC simulation technology.

A special Inveresk Showcase was also held featuring displays, tours, activities and information on studying at the University.

The Launceston Open Day was the last of three events, with University Open Days also held consecutively in past weeks at the Cradle Coast and Hobart campuses – giving students the chance to visit more than one of the University’s sites.
