Meet current students
Chat with current students – hearing about being a student first-hand provides you with a great insight into the reality of what day-to-day life is like. You will also get the chance to meet students who are considering their choices – just like you!
Ask questions about your course
Course leaders and admissions tutors will be on hand, so ask them any questions you have about your chosen course. How is it structured? What choice of modules is there? Is there opportunity for placements and field trips? What’s the style of teaching and assessment? Test their knowledge!
Take an accommodation tour
Check out the accommodation options, take a tour and find out more from students currently living in halls.
Explore the campus
Check out the facilities that are important to you and your chosen course, as well as visiting the more general facilities such as the library, the Students’ Union (SU) and sports facilities.
Visit the Students’ Union (SU)
Discover more about the hub of student life, and what clubs and societies you can join. The SU offers a place to take time out, relax, gain advice and socialise.
Get advice on money
Managing your money can be daunting at first, so let the finance team help to prepare you with one of their budgeting workshops or attend a session on applying for student funding.
Soak up the atmosphere
Finally, it’s all about soaking up the atmosphere and trusting your instincts. By attending an Open Day, you have taken the first step towards your future and sometimes you ‘just know’ if this is the right university for you!
