Campus tours

We will be slowing welcoming schools back to our campus in the second half of 2020. We ask all campus guests to follow COVID-safe practises on campus. This includes good hygiene, frequent handwashing and observing 1.5-meter physical distancing where possible. If you are unwell or experiencing symptoms, please stay home.

Join our student ambassadors for a tour of our Camperdown/Darlington campus. Get an inside look at Australia’s oldest university and receive the answers to any questions you have about university.

Tours start underneath the Quadrangle Clocktower and cover many of the key features on campus. A typical campus tour is 2 hours in duration, comprising a 1-hour tour of the campus and facilities, and a 1-hour University presentation.

School visits and careers markets

Our student ambassadors visit schools to provide advice on all aspects of university including courses, global exchange opportunities, transferring and deferring, and other topics to help students make an informed decision. 

School visits include a 35-minute presentation followed by a five minute Q&A session, and we can tailor the presentation to meet your specific needs.

Specialist presentations on scholarships, onshore international students and admission pathways are available on request.

We regularly attend high school careers markets throughout the year.
