More than 1500 visitors, including hundreds of school leavers, are expected to descend on the campus between 8.30am and 2pm for the open day which showcases all four colleges – Sciences, Business, Humanities and Social Sciences and Creative Arts.
A packed programme of events includes mini-lectures on a range of topics including creative careers in communication and an overview of programmes and performances at the New Zealand School of Music. Other attractions for prospective students include the opportunity to tour communication, media and drama labs, nursing facilities and the new College of Creative Arts building, Te Ara Hihiko.
A design tour will venture through the building’s high-tech facilities featuring an assortment of gallery and workspaces, and then continue onto the Museum Building and the James Coe Industrial Design Centre.
There will also be the opportunity for prospective student pilots to test aviation skills in in a specially designed flight simulator provided by Massey University’s School of Aviation. Staff from Palmerston North will be on hand to answer any questions too.
Tours of the university’s accommodation complex and information workshops for Maori and Pasifika students will also be held.
Practical information about student support on campus and career options beyond university will be available too.
