The Hull School of Architecture and the Hull School of Art and Design will throw open their doors in the city centre on Wednesday (10th  February) to allow prospective students to take a look around.


The event is a must for anyone considering a career in architecture, fine art, graphic design, animation or interior design, as academics in each department will be on hand to talk to students about what’s on offer at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside.


Visitors will also be able to find out more about the university’s courses in phonic art, museum and exhibition design and architectural technology. Tours will be made of the city centre campus and information will be available on accommodation and learning support services.


“Both the School of Architecture and the School of Art and Design have an enviable reputation for excellence and have been an integral part of the academic life of the city of Hull for decades,” said university spokesman Jez Ashberry. “The School of Art and Design traces its history back to 1861 and its students have garnered a host of awards in recent years. The university is very keen to show them off to prospective students.”


Students and visitors attending the open day should register at the George Street Restaurant from 10am on Wednesday 10th February. A welcome meeting will take place in the Saville Lecture Theatre, George Street, at 10.30am.
