Visiting an Open Day
It’s important to make an informed decision about what and where to study. Attending an Open Day is a fantastic way to find out all the information you need to make an informed choice about what you would like to study, and where.
The following tips will help you get the most out of your University Open day visit:
1. Choose the right course for you.
2. Get prepared.
Note down the things you and your family think are important; split the ‘tick list’ up between you all. That way, you have plenty of time to get lots of information about everything you’re interested in finding out. Think about which facilities you’re more likely to use during your time here and inspect them closely. Especially buildings like the Library, which you’re likely to use for long periods of time!
3. Find out where the University is.
4. Ask lots of questions!
5. Don’t rush out..
Don’t leave an Open Day straight away, grab a drink and chat over your experience before you head home. That way, if you have any more questions, you can get an answer before you leave. Sitting and experiencing the vibe in the campus coffee shop will give you a taste of student life. And don’t be afraid to come back more than once – you want to make the right choice!
