MURDOCH University is expecting thousands of visitors and prospective students to flock to its South Street campus for an open day on Sunday, July 30.

The open day provides an opportunity to tour the institution and meet and question students and staff.

Murdoch University vice-chancellor Professor Eeva Leinonen said the event was about providing visitors with a taste of university life.

“Murdoch is a place where natural curiosity thrives and the huge range of activities on the day will inspire a sense of wonder in all that can be achieved here,” she said.

Guidance will be available on course options, alternative pathways into Murdoch, enrolments, fees and scholarships, student support, overseas study opportunities and student accommodation. Those interested in postgraduate study will be able to chat to academics to find out how to forge ahead in industry and research.

Regular tram tours will help visitors explore the 227-hectare campus.

Guided tours of facilities, including the state-of-the-art nursing simulation suites, the Media Arts Centre and the working farm and wetlands, will also be available.

More information on all the activities on offer is available at www.murdoch.edu.au/study/open-day.

The open day will be held from 9am to 3pm.
