CROWDS EXPECTED AT OPEN DAY

 

Four hundred prospective students are expected for an open day at the Lincoln campus of the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside on Tuesday (25th January).

 

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

 

September will herald the opening of the £5 million science building which is currently under construction, and tutors will be on hand to discuss the new provision.

 

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 this September can come along for a day on campus to see our extensive facilities,” said Ann Spencer, education liaison manager for the university.

 

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.

 

Student ambassadors will also be on hand to show students around the campus and chat to them about what life is really like at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside.

 

Visitors can turn up on the day but are advised to arrive on campus in the morning. For more information telephone Karen Raynes in the Marketing Department on 01522 886097.
