Hundreds of people from across the Central Coast region will get a taste of university life as the University of Newcastle opens its campus doors for the Central Coast Open Day on Saturday 29 July.

In one of the biggest events held on campus each year, prospective students will be able to visit the Ourimbah Campus and, for the first time, the University of Newcastle Central Coast Clinical School at Gosford.

Open Day is an opportunity for those who are considering study and community members to experience the University’s vibrant campus life. Prospective students can tour the state-of-the-art facilities, meet their future lecturers, talk to current students, get advice about study pathways and get involved with interactive demonstrations.

Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Alex Zelinsky AO explained Open Day was an opportunity for anyone thinking about their study options to learn more about the University.

“Whether you are finishing high school or are already in the workforce and looking to expand your skills or explore a new career, there’s a place for you at our University. I encourage everyone to come along to Open Day and learn more about their study options.

“Our doors are open and there are so many study and pathway options, with plenty of staff on hand to help find the right choice for you,” Professor Zelinsky said.

This year is the first time the University of Newcastle Central Coast Clinical School, Gosford will be featured as part of Open Day, which is a great opportunity for students who are thinking about studying nursing or medicine to tour the state-of-the-art facility.

The University of Newcastle Central Coast Clinical School is located on the grounds of the Gosford Hospital and houses immersive tools for learning, including replica medical facilities that provide students simulated hands-on clinical experience.

Highlights at the University of Newcastle Central Coast Clinical School, Gosford will also include a Pit Stop Health Check, where nursing and health students will be on hand to practice their skills and give visitors some health tips, and a chance for visitors to test their own life saving skills on the advanced simulation equipment.

In the lead up to Open Day, the University of Newcastle has also introduced its Early Entry program, which allows Year 12 students to apply and receive an offer to study before they commence their final HSC exams.

Current year 12 student, Calan Tucker from St Edwards Christian Brothers College on the Central Coast, said he had already completed his Early Entry application and was looking forward to Open Day to find out more about his study options and what university life had to offer.

“I’m so glad that I’ve already submitted my Early Entry application. Getting early entry will take a lot of stress out of the final HSC exams, so I can just focus on getting the best results I can.

“I’m excited to go to Open Day to get a better understanding of the different courses, so that I can finalise my UAC preference list. I’d love to be on a pathway to study medicine one day.  

“I also want to find out what the university has to offer for student support and how it’s going to be different to high school,” Calan explained.

Registrations are now live for Open Day and students and the community can plan their day by visiting here

For those students interested in getting a taste for the University’s Newcastle campuses, the Newcastle Open Day will be held on Saturday 26 August across both the city and Callaghan campuses.
