10 Reasons Why You Should Attend AIT Open Day

Friday, 21 July 2017

  1. A school is only as good as its students and the work they produce

    We’re super proud of the artwork our students produce every term. We showcase these projects to display the high quality work that comes from our students as a result of being mentored by some of the best in the industry.

    This is also a way for you to see the quality of work you could be producing over time.

  2. Funky Campuses and Cutting Edge Facilities

    Our boutique Sydney and Melbourne Campuses are unique with the facilities on offer for our students. The campuses are small to maximise the amount of time our students have with their teachers and lecturers.

    • We also have some pretty cool spaces across both campuses that are there to help support our students with their projects:
    • Green Screen Room
    • Sound recording studio
    • Library
    • Student lounge areas
    • Mac Labs
    • Student Kitchen
    • Student Spaces for group/individual work

    This is a great opportunity to see where you can hang out when you’re not in class!

  3. Get to know the students of today

    Speaking to current students studying at AIT is a great resource to take advantage of! They’ve been in your shoes before and have made the decision to select AIT as their preference for studying. Find out why?!

    You can also find out more details about the courses and subjects from their point of view - what they love about their studies, challenges they may face and the support they receive from teachers and staff on campus.

  4. Meet your future teachers and educators

    Our teachers contain a wealth of information in their respective subjects. All our teachers have industry experience - and are still involved in the industry so they’re keeping up with the changes that occur everyday!

    They will provide you with information about our courses and share their own industry experience too! Ask as many questions as you like here and participate in the demos they have available.

  7. Where will you be hanging out after class?

    It’s important to know the type of environment you could be spending the next 3 years at. What’s the vibe like? Do you think you’d feel comfortable here? Plus, it’s important to know how and time taken to travel to your classes everyday, and where will you buy breakfast/lunch? Who makes the best coffee around? How long does it take to walk to the park down the road to chill out after your class?

    Open Days are a perfect opportunity to scope out all these questions and more!

  8. We’ll talk about the important info too like entry requirements and tuition fees

    Each university and college’s entry requirements and application process is different. This is a great opportunity to find out what exactly is needed by you to study at AIT.

    Everything from ATAR requirements, tuition fee breakdowns and the application process will be covered during our Open Day. Oh! And did we mention our higher education courses are Fee-Help Approved?!

  10. What extracurricular activities will you be involved in?

    From SRC clubs to Industry Events on campus, we aim to provide you with the ultimate student experience at AIT!

    Our SRC hosts a number of clubs available for students to join and increase their skills in different disciplines like drawing and animation. This is also a great way to mingle with students outside of your class - who knows when you’ll be in a group working on a project together!

    We also host multiple industry events throughout the term. Ranging from AITTalks which usually go for 1 hour during the day or Master Talks that happen after school hours, we get the experts in across the different study options to present to students and give an insight on their own experiences. Recently, we invited the likes of Production Designer, Deborah Riley from Game of Thrones, Concept Artists, Ev Shipard and Gerhard Mozsi from Alien: Covenant and Art Director, Jacinta Leong from Hacksaw Ridge.
