Future university students will be able to get all the advice they need as they consider their future course and career path options at The University of Notre Dame Australia's Open Day on Saturday 29 August 2015.

From 9am to 3pm, the national Catholic university will open the doors of its Broadway and Darlinghurst sites to prospective students and their families at this annual event.

Prospective students can take part in a range of hands-on activities at the various Schools; find out about the University's unique admissions process and hear from graduates about why they rate Notre Dame as a 5 star university.

Great food, live music and campus tours will be available all day across both sites while Broadway will also offer historical tours, including the library, departing on the hour from 10am until 2pm from the main courtyard.

A free shuttle bus will operate on the day between Broadway and Darlinghurst, leaving the Broadway site on the half hour from 9.30am with the last bus at 1.30pm. Return buses depart Darlinghurst hourly from 10am with the last bus at 2pm.

Anne-Maree McCarthy, Manager, Admissions & Prospective Students Office, said attending university events, such as Open Day, gave people the best possible opportunity to speak with lecturers and current students about course options, study recommendations and life as a university student.

"Applying for university can be an overwhelming experience for some students and their families but here at Notre Dame we have the expert advice that will help students find their way to the right course and career," Ms McCarthy said.

"Notre Dame students are part of a vibrant community atmosphere, underpinned by the University's Objects which include providing an excellent standard of training for the professions and pastoral care for students."

Coinciding with Notre Dame's Open Day is the release of the 2016 Good Universities Guide which highlighted the University's continued 5-star ratings by graduates.

In the latest edition, Notre Dame received 5-star ratings in the categories of: 'Teaching Quality', 'Generic Skills' and 'Overall Graduate Satisfaction', for the ninth year in a row. In the latest results, Notre Dame also received 5-star ratings in the categories of 'Graduate Starting Salary' and 'Getting a Full Time Job' for the second year in a row.
