Staff at the University of Lincoln are bracing themselves for a busy time on Saturday (23rd March), when over 1,000 visitors are expected to visit the Brayford Pool campus for a spring open day.


Prospective students are about to make important decisions about which university they wish to study at, and Saturday’s event will give them a much better idea of what courses, facilities and resources are available at Lincoln.


The open day begins with a welcome talk at 10.30am, but the programme repeats throughout the day until 3pm and those who are unable to arrive in the morning can still catch the same welcome at 12.30pm.


Students and academics will be available throughout the day to talk about the degree programmes taught at the Brayford Pool campus, which range from Complementary Medicine and Forensic Science to Business Studies and Public Relations.


Tours of the £60 million campus, which will take in the student village, the learning resource centre and the new sports centre, will be available throughout the day. Science students will also get the chance to tour the £5 million Brayford Science Centre which was opened last month by the Higher Education Minister, Margaret Hodge MBE.


Expert speakers will discuss student finance, accommodation and getting back into education, and academics from all subjects will be available to discuss courses on a one-to-one basis.
