If you're weighing up your university choices, head to the University of Auckland Open Day on Saturday, 31 August. With the chance to sit-in on lectures and an opportunity to visit the student accommodation, this could be the make or break moment you need when deciding which university to choose next year.

The University of Auckland is ranked number one in the world for overall health and wellbeing, sixth in the world for gender equality and 15th in the world for education. That's an outstanding achievement for New Zealand — and this Saturday you'll get a preview as to why it's ranked so highly.

Whether you're interested in criminology, mechanical engineering or commercial law, the Open Day will feature lectures for you to sit-in on and additional information sessions to answer all of your burning questions. Considering teaching but you've had so many arguments with parents about it, you're not sure if you should forget the subject altogether? No worries, there's a talk at 9.40am just for you (and maybe bring your mum along too). You never know, you might end up finding that both you and your mum want to start studying teaching together — it's what the University of Auckland Open Day is all about.

So whether you're a first-time student, you've never quite found the subject that captivated you, or you're looking for a university to call home – head on down to the Open Day and enjoy yourself, you never know what you might learn.
