Thousands flock to Open Days around the State

The Inveresk Precinct in Launceston and the Cradle Coast Campus in Burnie were vibrant hubs of learning and fun for the whole community on the weekend, when both sites played host to University of Tasmania Open Days.

Crowds flocked to a variety of events at Cradle Coast and Inveresk sites, including course and scholarship advice spaces, an alumni lounge, research trail, accommodation tours, sporting activities and demonstrations.

There was also plenty to do at the Australian Maritime College at Newnham, for those interested in setting a course for a career with a nautical edge.

Executive Director of Marketing Jason Purdie said open days were a showcase of the outstanding work of staff and students.

“Our open days are an opportunity for families and prospective students to get an understanding of what the University has to offer in terms of teaching, research and campus life,” he said.

In Launceston people were also on hand to talk about the new campus project and to hear from future students and the community about the ways they like to learn and the things that will draw people to the precinct.

“We are excited about the future of our campus at Inveresk and the impact it will have on the city of Launceston and the wider northern region," Mr Purdie said. 

“We’ll be designing new ways of learning and interacting together as a community, such as flexible learning spaces, creating a vibrant 24/7 campus environment with easy access to the city and amazing opportunities to enhance the student experience."
