UNE Open Day postponed to 2021
The University of New England will not be holding an open day for 2020 in order to comply with public health recommendations to manage the risks associated with the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
The UNE Open Day previously scheduled for 8 May 2020 usually attracts up to 1,500 visitors, mainly high school students, from across New South Wales and Southern Queensland.
This action is consistent with advice from authorities to consider avoiding large events where diverse groups of people are gathered from varied areas and social distancing cannot be managed effectively.
While many people may be disappointed that Open Day will not be held this year, the University must prioritise the safety of visitors, students, staff and their families.
Schools and the general public are reminded that free Campus Tours are continuing throughout 2020 and can be booked online.
There is also a range of support materials on the UNE website, including a virtual tour, at Campus Life.
The next UNE Open Day is scheduled for 7th May 2021.
