Swinburne Hawthorn campus

Get a taste of uni life

Come along to our Hawthorn campus for a sneak peek at what comes after high school. With talks, presentations, hands-on workshops in your future study area and more, there’s no better way to feel prepared for uni life.

Explore the Hawthorn campus with a guided tour, then head over to a lecture theatre for a presentation from a Swinburne academic. Got questions about student life? Ask one of our student ambassadors during their ‘Ask Me Anything’ session.

And of course, you’ll spend the day learning and talking about the courses and subjects that interest you the most with interactive workshops.
