We had our Open Day this week. Of course, it doesn’t mean that the other 364 are Closed Days! We do welcome visitors at other times if the can’t make our Open Day or our Information Day, but it is much more limited as to what you’ll be able to see.
It’s worth visiting a couple of Open Days just to get a feel of what different universities are like and to expand your vision of the possible coursers available to you. It also gives you chance to sort out any questions you have, although you can ask questions by email, phone or social networks at any time. (I reckon that the only silly question is “Why didn’t I ask that before?”!).
You’ll find most (if not all) universities will invite you back after you’ve applied, so it isn’t essential to see all your choices before you apply, but it is important to see your firm and insurance choice at some stage. After all, you’re going to live there for 3 or 4 years! It’s funny, but you’ll get a feeling “Yes, I could happily study there” or “No way!”, but you probably won’t be able to say why. One of my cubs claimed the snowman in the prospectus decided it for them, whilst another claimed it was the duck pond– but I think they were winding me up!
Our Open Day was very busy – I didn’t even have time to get a bite till after dark. At times it may have looked like organised chaos, but having been to a number of other uni’s I’ve seen it from both sides. When you have unknown numbers (thousands) turning up at the same time and wanting to find where to go it can be a bit of a rummy.
Anyway, chatting to visitors to our Open Day they all seemed very appreciative, particularly with the excitement of lecturers who really enjoy their subject. And that excitement is what we hope to pass on.
