Change of Preference Days 2019

With exams done and dusted, VTAC have once again opened their doors to changing your preferences. It also means that Change of Preference Days are fast approaching. I'll be once again collating all the Victorian institutes opening their doors for Change of Preference (COP) Days, Open Days or Information Days in this very post.
Note: The names are quite variable across the institutes, so I'll be calling them Change of Preference Days or COP Days for simplicity. 

The overall list can be found here, with some phone numbers and locations listed. I've split this according to universities and institutes, as well as finding exact websites where possible. Please use both lists when searching for your desired institute(s). Please check if you need to register to attend the event at your desired institute(s).   

From my 2018 post on Change of Preference Days:
Whatís Change of Preference Day?
Itís essentially another Open Day for those who are applying through VTAC this year to check out campuses and ask questions about courses. This time, though, you'll know your ATAR and can decide on a clearer pathway to a career. Itís also a week that you can, you guessed it, add/ delete courses and change your preferences accordingly.

Important Dates
December 12 - ATAR Release Day
December 14 - December Round Change of Preference closes at 4pm
December 18 - December Round Offers released at 2pm (Change of Preference opens again at 4pm)
December 20 - Change of Preference closes for 2019

Cheeky ol' bump to this thread as a reminder to current VTAC applicants to check out institutes you're interested in and register, where necessary.  ;D

One more bump for the Class of 2019, now that you're armed with more information!
If you're hoping to ask questions about VTAC, preferences and pathways, feel free to check out the After Year 12 Q & A before it closes.
