Souths Cares partner, The University of Sydney, throws open its doors next weekend to students from across the South Sydney area to attend its annual Open Day activities.

Shannon Donato, General Manager of Souths Cares, said the University’s Open Day provides all students with the great opportunity to explore life on campus, to get advice on courses and even attend mini lectures.

“Souths Cares supports The University of Sydney’s Open Day as it generates awareness of entry pathways, and learning and career options for our students,” he said.

“There may be some high school students that have never considered university as a possibility but these are exactly the type of students that should visit the university on Open Day.

“The Open Day will give those students a chance to see that Sydney University is more than just a series of old, large, intimidating Harry Potter-esque buildings.

“Potential students will have the opportunity to speak with academics, admissions staff and current students about everything from on campus activities to available courses and scholarships.”

Mr Kaveh Ghezel, Head of Undergraduate Recruitment at The University of Sydney, said that the Open Day will take place on Saturday, 30 August, from 9.00 am to 4.00 pm.

“Students can check out the different clubs and societies they can join, hear more about accommodation and international opportunities,” Kaveh said.
