RECORDS TO BE BROKEN AT OPEN DAY

 

Fifteen hundred visitors are expected for a record-breaking open day at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside on Saturday (25th September).

 

ULH open days are relaxed and informal with the opportunity for prospective students and their parents to sample university life at their own pace.

 

“We expect to welcome at least 1,500 visitors - it will be a record-breaking day as we’ve never had more than 1,000,” said education liaison manager Ann Spencer.

 

The Lincoln campus will be open to the public between 10am and 3pm for subject talks, tours of accommodation and a chance to visit the Learning Resource and Media Production Centre - home of two TV studios and a host of radio suites.

 

“Anyone thinking about going to university next year can come along for a day on campus to see our extensive facilities,” said Ms Spencer.

 

“With application forms now being filled in at schools and colleges across the country it is important that students come along to see what is on offer.” 

 

Programmes at the campus have expanded further this year, and there will be talks on all subjects including programmes which be new for 2000: science subjects, food and environmental programmes, Public Relations and Finance.

 

From 2000 science subjects will be taught in a purpose-built £5 million science building at the Lincoln campus which is currently under construction.

 

Visitors can turn up on the day, but are advised to arrive on campus in the morning. For more information telephone the Marketing Department on 01522 886042.
