Open Day goes online

Open Day goes online

The 2020 RMIT Open Day promises to be an experience like none other; an immersive online introduction to the University from the comfort of home.

This year’s Open Day will be hosted on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 August from 10am – 3pm AEST.

With current restrictions in Victoria, the University has adapted to provide a unique online experience that lives beyond a single event.

Jasmin Tavita, Senior Adviser of Domestic and Direct Student Recruitment said this year’s open day will provide some inspiration and excitement for the future in a year marred by uncertainty.

“Open Day is a rite of passage for many students and aids in their career decisions,” Tavita said.

“We have been working hard to build and design an event that will provide students access to RMIT wherever they are currently living and studying.”

Over 35,000 people attended the 2019 RMIT Open Days – a figure that could be eclipsed with the greater convenience offered by its online iteration.

Tavita and her team have been busy creating an experience that will bring to life RMIT’s people, places and opportunities.

“This will be an immersive showcase of RMIT’s people, courses and culture as a leading place of applied learning in technology, design and enterprise,” Tavita said.

A key feature of the 2020 Open Day will be the ‘Virtual Planner’ – an organiser that tailors the user’s interests with recommendations of videos and information for students and parents.

A prospective student who has flagged an interest in Engineering could be prompted to virtually tour RMIT’s Advanced Manufacturing Precinct or drop into an information sessions with RMIT industry partners.

Prospective students and parents will be able to explore the RMIT City, Brunswick, Bundoora and Vietnam campuses though immersive virtual tours with 360 images and videos.

They will also be able to collect information about RMIT programs, student services, clubs, study tours and industry partners.

Prospective students will be able to talk with current students, alumni, academics and support services over the weekend.

There are prizes to be won from a range of RMIT partners and alumni businesses, ensuring attendees don’t miss out on the customary ‘freebies’ associated with open days gone-by.
