Virtual Open Day 2020

Virtual Open Day 2020 – Sunday August 2, 2020

There isn’t much Covid-19 has not impacted including U.Q.’s usually bustling open days. But rest assured, prospective students can still get a taste of university and college life at this year’s Virtual Open Day Sunday August 2, 2020.

How It Will Work

This year’s Open Day will feature an easy to use, online hub offering an engaging virtual experience. No need to login or register, simply visit our home page on Sunday August 2 anytime between 9am – 6pm.

When you first enter the event, you will see a ‘timeline’. Here you will be able to see a welcome message, enter the virtual exhibition and see live streamed events such as a live music performance or engineering lab experiment and so on.

Much like in the U.Q. Centre at a traditional event, you will see a list of all the booths that are in the exhibition hall. For ease of navigation, the booths will be grouped into study areas, e.g. Business and Economics, Engineering and Computing, etc.
