How to make the most of Open Days at JMC Academy

So you’ve heard us on the radio, you’ve seen our website, checked out our facebook page and booked your spot to attend our open day!

We encourage students just like you to join our Open Day, students who are searching for information about the creative industries and insight into whether studying at JMC Academy is right for you. 

Open days give you the chance to soak up the culture, meet our lecturers and speak to current students about their experiences. It provides a great opportunity for you to come and see the courses and activities that JMC offer. 

JMC Academy holds three Opens Days throughout the year, where we invite students to come campus to experience our school and what we have to offer. If you’re coming to our Sydney Open day we will have a Slushie machine to keep you cool this summer! 

Here’s what you need to remember when making the most of your day with us:

Come prepared to maximise your time – Get to know the agenda before the day
  • Once you have registered, you will receive your electronic Open Day program one week before the day. Print out this program and map as it will come in handy for your preparation. 
  • Get familiar with the schedule and plan which course talks or demonstrations you want to sit in on and plan your day. 
  • Bring your family or friends along with you! It always helps to have support on big open days. 

Make well informed decisions for your future.
Here are some suggestions of what questions you could ask to get the most out of the day about the course, modules and methods of assessment and what is the balance of theory and practical. 
  • How will this course make help me get a career? What careers will this lead to?
  • Why should I choose to study at JMC Academy?
  • What have previous students gone on to do after graduating?
  • Is this course 2 or 3 years long?
  • Do you have career guidance?
  • What grades do I need to get in?
  • How do I apply?
  • Do I have to attend an interview or audition? Can I book one on the day?
  • Ask about accommodation
