Melbourne Model on show at Open Day

University of Melbourne degrees are different - and so is our Open Day.

Melbourne Model on show

Melbourne’s Open Day will take place on the Parkville and Southbank campuses on Sunday 20 August.

This year the event will feature programming from the acclaimed Science Gallery International, which will soon be embedded at the University.

BLOOD, What’s your type? is a fun, hands on pop-up event that explores the science and sociology of blood-type. In an international blood ‘dating’ game, visitors can have their blood tested on the spot using the Melbourne-born Haemokinesis GLIF testing technique to reveal matches from all over the world.

It's just one of many highlights on the day, including:

  • We all know university students survive on baked beans and tinned spaghetti, right? Well not anymore. The Fair Food Unicycle is a pop up community kitchen designed to make ‘fair-food’ a reality for students on campus. It’s a cargo-bike that makes fair and sustainable on-campus catering and cooking easier for students, while providing opportunities for food education, skills development and outreach programs for the broader community.
  • The University is celebrating ten years of the Melbourne Model degree system. A first for Australia, the Melbourne Model set the benchmark for world class education. This Open Day, the University will showcase how the model gives students a wider understanding of the world beyond their degree, allowing them to create their own academic paths and explore new options along the way.

This Open Day, learn about the Melbourne Model - our point of difference - and discover how it helps Melbourne graduates make a real impact on the world.
