Open days

“For me, going to an open day not only confirmed that I wanted to study in Plymouth, but that I wanted to go to university in the first place. I believe open and applicant days are a fundamental part of the application process, as it provides an opportunity to break down that barrier of unfamiliarity with the location, the course, and the idea of being a student.”
