Open Day is your opportunity to get a feel for the campus, buildings and social environment you’ll be studying in. During the day you’ll be able to attend presentations on your chosen discipline, and speak to academic staff and La Trobe students about your course.
Do I need to book or register for Open Day?
There’s no need to book for Open Day – just make sure you arrive in time for the sessions you want to attend. You can register for updates to get all the latest information about Open Day, and you can plan your day using our Open Day app.
