From Melbourne’s Worksmith to The Fermentary, see who we have lined up for our Virtual Open Day.

There's no better way to cure any curiosity you may have about pursuing a career in the experience industry than by tuning in to our virtual Open Day. With changes happening so rapidly, see how Australia's experience experts create unforgettable events online.

We have information sessions, masterclasses and industry panels ready to go. So whether you're keen to develop a new skill like how to bake a brunch-worthy sourdough or want to take a deep-dive into the incredible measures the experience industry has taken during this time - we've got you covered.

Information Sessions

Head over to our Exhibition Hall, where you'll find everything you need to know about the courses that are on offer for 2021. Our Program Leaders and Course Coordinators will talk you through the deets of our Certificate, Diploma, Bachelor and Masters programs. After the session (or sessions!), you can schedule a one-on-one meeting with one of our teachers. You can ask them about our industry connections, student opportunities, exclusive student masterclasses or anything else that's important to you when it comes to your education and future.


If you've been to an Angliss Open Day, you know that our masterclasses are a must-see! They give you a glimpse of what life is like here on campus or online. Here's what we have in store for you:

Sourdough 101 and Brining Vegetables with The Fermentary
To get the ball rolling, we have a sourdough bread tutorial with one of our patisserie and bakery teachers, Paul Hughes. He'll cover the basics, such as how to feed your starter, master kneading techniques, and more. Before you know it, you'll be jumping on the bread-making trend.

We also have Sharon Flynn, founder of The Fermentary with our Food Studies Lecturer Dr. Kelly Donati showing us how to brine vegetables. Brining, also known as pickling, can seem tricky to do. But with Sharon's help, you can be an expert at brining, which includes basic brining techniques and a simple recipe you can follow at home.

Styling Events - Hacks you need to know!
You can break that groundhog day cycle by making simple moments shared with family and friends a little bit more special. Don't wait for your next birthday or anniversary; make up a reason to celebrate your week.

You can tune in to our Events teacher, Sandra Grima's session on event styling. Be in the know about emerging design trends such as Classic Floral, Organic Boho and monochromatic table styling, and best of all, how to do it on a shoestring budget.

Cocktails at home
For cocktails, we've enlisted Melbourne-based boutique gin distillery, Little Lon, to show us how to whip up fancy (but simple) cocktails at home.

The cocktails we've designed for Open Day hint at our shared history and nod to our Indigenous Rain Garden on campus - a slice of urban heaven you're sure to visit in the future.

Industry Panels

In a series of Industry Panels, you'll hear leaders and experts talk about how you can get your start in the industry, what they're looking for from a candidate and how the industry is adapting to 2020.

Catch Michael Bascetta (Worksmith), Andy Emans (Starward Whisky) and Cameron Maher (Andrew McConnell Restaurants) discussing how the industry is coming up with creative pivots to adapt to the current climate.

Michelle McIntosh (The Langham) and Andrew Edwards (Adina Apartment Hotel) chat about how they made their start in the hotel and resort industry and how experiencing different roles gave them a much richer perspective of the industry.

"It may take some time to recover. In the meantime, if you know you want to be in the business of making people happy and creating unforgettable experiences - there's no better time than now to acquire the skills you need to join the hotel industry," said Andrew.

Interested in other areas? We have Industry Panel chats for Tourism, Events and Foods too.

This year's Open Day is jam-packed with exciting events and ample opportunity to ask questions. Whether you know exactly what you want to pursue or if you're registered to explore every single option, we can't wait to have you tuned in.

Live Sessions

Year after year, we welcome industry leaders and experts talk about why they love what they do and how you can get your start in their field. And of course, we want you to have the opportunity to ask questions! So don't miss out on our live Q&A sessions.⁠
