“UniSA For A Day” Experience Days
Last week five lucky students were able to attend the ‘UniSA for a day’ program to gain an insight into a variety of courses and careers. The areas covered were Law/Business, Creative Arts and Design. During these days students were given hands on tasks to complete. They were also given tours of the facilities and a glimpse of life as a student. Below is a student reflection:

Business and Law
On 22 November Sophie and I participated in the University of South Australia Experience Day in Business and Law. This day involved a tour of the City West campus, this included a look into all their new buildings and halls. After the tour was through we were all spilt into groups and did different activities related to business and law, such as creating our own company, looking at different advertising strategies and any laws that needed to be taken into account. This day was very informative as to what a day at university would look like.
