Before the day

When is Open Day?

Virtual Open Day at Box Hill Institute is on Thursday 8 October from 10.00am – 3.00pm (AEST), via our new and exciting interactive platform. 

Do I have to register to attend?

Yes, you will need to register to access our Virtual Open Day. Register here.

Can anyone attend Open Day?

We've gone virtual this year which is exciting. It means anyone who registers for our Virtual Open Day experience can attend – no matter where you are in the world! Register here.

If you're thinking of studying at TAFE next year or in the future, then the Virtual Open Day is perfect for you. Most of our visitors are Year 10, 11 and 12 students, but we really encourage parents, brothers, sisters, friends or anyone involved in your study journey, to join us too. Everyone is welcome.

As a parent, how can I help my child find the right course?

We understand how important it is for you to help your child find the right course for them and their future career. Box Hill Institute has three Skills and Job Centres across Melbourne and on Open Day you will be able to chat to staff from the centres.

They will be able to help you with questions such as:

  • What career is right for my child?
  • What training is right for my child?
  • How do they get started?
  • What is the right job for my child?
  • How do they get started if they want to enter a trade?

Can I contact the Skills and Job Centres before Open Day?

Absolutely! The Skills and Jobs Centre are happy to assist you, please reach out to them via the Skills and Jobs Centre page here.

I’m not sure which course is right for me. Can I chat to someone that can help?

Yes, you can! Choosing a course to study is an important decision for you, your future career and life ahead.

If you are unsure which course is right for you or you have lots of options to choose from and can’t quite decide, it’s a good idea to chat to one of our Skills and Job Centre staff.

They will be able to help you with questions such as:

  • What career is right for me?
  • What training is right for me?
  • How do I get started?
  • What is the right job for me?
  • How do I get started if I want to enter a trade?

And remember, even if you start a course you think is the right one for you – but as it progresses you realise it isn’t quite right – you can always change to a different course that is better suited to you and your career needs. Box Hill Institute has lots of courses and qualifications to choose from.
