Over 900 visitors will be attending an open day at the University of Lincoln’s Brayford pool campus this Saturday (5th October).


Travelling from all over the country – and some from other continents – the potential students will attend the day to discover more about the courses and the many other aspects of university life.


Accountancy, Art and Design, Animal Management and Welfare, Forensics, History, English, Conservation and Restoration and Law are just some of the subject areas which will be showcased on the day.


The university’s main building will be open from 9.30am until 3.30pm – with welcome presentations at 10.00am and 12.30pm - offering visitors the opportunity to take campus tours, obtain various student related information and attend presentations on the many courses available.


Halls of residence, science laboratories and sports and recreation facilities will be included in the tours and visitors wishing to view the university’s Riseholme Park and Cathedral Campus campuses will be able to do so by booking a place on one of the organised coach tours.


For potential students eager to find out first-hand about student experiences there will be many current students in attendance and for parents there will be a special session offering parental advice. 


“The open day is for anyone wishing to find out more about the developments of the university, the courses we offer and our range of facilities,” said a university spokesperson. “Just call in to Brayford Pool and take a look.”
