RMIT is open this Sunday 10 August from 10am to 4pm to give prospective students, their families and friends the chance to explore all that's on offer from Australia's largest tertiary institution.
More than 40,000 people are expected to visit RMIT's City, Brunswick and Bundoora campuses, with a free bus service linking the campuses.
Professor Gill Palmer, Acting Vice-Chancellor and President, said Open Day allowed prospective students to experience their future in a way that could not be done online or in a brochure.
Open Day allows future students to find out about the programs and areas of study they are interested in and experience an exciting and innovative range of displays, information sessions and activities.
