Three worksheets to guide years 10, 11 or 12s through uni open days.
Open days start in July. Students who want to go to uni really need to start going to open days in year 10.
These three worksheets build students’ capacity to find the right university path from school.
There is so much to discover and experience at university open days that students need to start going to them in Year 10. Those students who are most familiar with their university have the best chance of success.
The smart trend is to do your research on social media then go to the coolest exhibitions for the experience and for your selfie.
The Year 10 Open Day Worksheet is short and simple. It will help you to get the most out of your day and help you to find careers to investigate over the next year.
If you went to some open days last year you will know what to expect and can plan your visit to get more out of it.
It is best to go with a family member as they care for you and may find out stuff that you miss.
The Year 11 Open Day Worksheet gives some shortcuts to planning your day so that you have the best time possible as you narrow down your choices for post school university courses.
The journey from school is a long one. Finding the right path to take is a good start.
Discovering your right career won’t come to you in a blinding flash of light. It will come in a whisper. You need to take time to listen.
The Year 12 Open Day Worksheet will guide those who are thinking of going to uni and who have an idea of what they want to do.
If you still have no idea what to do when you leave school PLEASE seek advice from a school or Jobs and Skills Centre career advisor or BOTH!! They will help you to clarify what you want to do.
