FEDERATION University Australia will throw open its doors on Sunday, 25 August, as it welcomes thousands of prospective students and their families to the 2019 Open Day.

To be held from 10am to 2pm at the Ballarat, Gippsland and Berwick campuses, Open Day is the premiere day of the year for the public to visit Federation University and learn more about their exciting study opportunities and industry experience programs. The day will include information sessions, guided tours, entertainment, food and accommodation information.

“We look forward to welcoming future students, their families and friends to our Ballarat campuses on Open Day – they are sure to find many courses and programs to choose from,” said Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Helen Bartlett.

“Federation University is proud to create job-ready graduates. We rate consistently highly nationally for employability – so our graduates have the best start possible to their careers.”

Visitors to the Ballarat campuses can enjoy a tour of the Arts Academy in Camp Street. Music theatre sensation Josh Piterman, who recently landed the title role in The Phantom of the Opera on the West End, graduated from the Arts Academy in 2006.

Federation University will also host an engaging panel discussion at the Mt Helen campus from 12.45pm. The discussion will be the first in a series of talks centred on education. Future discussions will include Bullying – how to cope, Helicopter parenting, How to make your child ready to learn, Building resilience in children and How to make your child street smart.

MasterChef Semi-Finalist and Federation University Alumni Tim Bone will visit the Mt Helen campus and hold cooking demonstrations from 11am.

“I formed some lifelong friendships while living on campus and I will always be grateful of the staff who were all very helpful and welcoming during my university days,” Mr Bone said.

“I’m excited to be able to give back and come and meet the university community, while sharing two of my recipes. I will also be available for a Q&A session and photo opportunities.”

Federation University’s new state-of-the-art Sports Science facility will be open for viewing for the first time on Open Day. The new centre features an indoor sports stadium, health and clinical exercise centre, community gym, new labs, teaching spaces and virtual anatomy tables.

Federation University is ranked number one in Australian universities for graduate employment skills and teaching quality.
