10th April 2000



At least 500 students are expected for an open day at the Lincoln campus of the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside on Wednesday 26th April.


And with family and friends also coming to view the facilities the total number of visitors could be twice that figure.


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


More than 100 students have already viewed the campus this year on the Wednesday tours, which are arranged by Education Liaison Manager Jacqueline Mayer.


The open day will be held just two days before the final UCAS deadline for students to choose where they will study for the next three years, and Jacqueline is confident they will be impressed by what they find at Lincoln.


“This is an exciting and nerve-wracking time for both students and their families,” she said. “They are about to take one of the most important decisions of their lives.


“Here at Lincoln we have some of the best facilities in the country in our Learning Resource and Media Production Centre and we hope that the visitors will come away certain that this university is the one to choose.”


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 science provision.


The Lincoln campus will be open to the public between 10am and 3pm on 26th April for subject talks, tours of the campus and the chance to chat to current students about their experiences.


Programmes at the campus have expanded further this year, and there will be talks on all subjects including those which will be new for 2000: forensic science, food and environmental programmes, public relations and finance.


Talks will be repeated throughout the day with welcome talks at 10am and 12.30pm.
