What is Open Day?

Meet the locals

Say hello to your future teachers, Swinburne current students, course experts, and the friendly community that makes up our Hawthorn campus’s lively surrounds.

Explore the campus

Sit on the grassy knolls and wander the hallways as if you were already a student with an ID, a timetable, and a backpack full of hefty books.

Ask your questions

Ever wondered what our Work Integrated Learning guarantee is? How long is a unit? Open Day is for asking your questions all day long. And we promise to never tire of them.

Get your haul

Make sure you’ve got enough free limbs – or free Swinburne tote bags – to handle all the food, drink, course info and other goodies you’ll be scoring.
