  • Interactive engineering lab tours

Made for the whole family to enjoy, the day will include great food, music, and entertainment from roving performers to a treasure hunt and kids’ zone.

Newcastle Open Day will take place on Saturday 25 August from 10am to 4pm.

Spread across two campuses, those interested in accounting and finance, business, communication and creative industries or law are invited to attend the NeW Space city campus to learn more.  Whilst those eager to explore science, technology, engineering, maths, medicine, education and arts, should visit the University’s Callaghan campus.
