Filling a tooth using a virtual dentistry simulator, attending a mock court trial, learning how to suture a wound and sitting down to a Chinese tea ceremony are some of the activities available to prospective students at The University of Western Australia’s Explore UWA Day on Sunday 28 August.
The event aims to help future university students investigate their study and career goals with the opportunity to explore campus life and speak with academics, graduates and students.
Students will be able to access hands-on activities, information sessions and campus tours, introducing them to the University’s schools and institutes along with its five residential colleges.
UWA Director of Future Students, Trish Rechichi said the annual event was both informative and good fun.

"It is one thing to read about what a university has to offer but it really helps to be able to visit the campus, speak to students and speak to staff,” Mrs Rechichi said.
“There’s a rich history of academic excellence at UWA and academics will be here to speak with people about their careers. We also want future students to see what they can expect to find on campus when they study here.”
Mrs Rechichi said events on the day included a presentation of design robots at the Architecture and Design hub, a trading room demonstration at the Business and Commerce hub and performances by UWA Conservatorium of Music students throughout the day.
“Explore UWA Day has a fun atmosphere with food stalls and music,” Mrs Rechichi said.
“People who register to come along have a chance to win prizes and most importantly see the vibrant UWA Campus.”
