Prospective students will be given a last chance to look around the University of Lincoln next month before they make their final decision about which university place to accept.


Around 2,000 visitors are expected to attend the important open day at the university on Saturday 6th March 2004. 


Prospective students and their friends and family will be able to talk to academics and current university students as well as being able to look at the facilities. 


The main event will be at the Brayford Pool campus but visitors will also have the opportunity to take shuttle buses to view the Cathedral Campus and Riseholme Park.


Welcome talks will be given at 10am, 11.40am, 1pm and 2.20pm and there will also be talks on student support and accommodation as well as advice for parents.


A programme of subject-related talks will continue throughout the day and lecturers will be available for one-to-one discussions with students.


Registration for all visitors will take place in the main academic building at the Brayford Pool campus.


“This is traditionally one of our busiest open days as prospective students are in the process of making decisions about which university to accept offers from,” said Jacqueline Mayer, Education Liaison Manager at the university.


“We are all geared up for the day and are hoping that it proves as popular as last year when a total of 2,100 people attended.”
