The University of Lincoln is to hold another of its popular open days this weekend.


The university’s Brayford Campus expects to see around 1,500 visitors on Saturday 9th October, many of whom will be travelling to Lincoln from all around the country.


The potential students can learn more about the courses on offer and can discover many other aspects of university life.


Accountancy, Art and Design, Animal Management and Welfare, Forensics, History, English, Games Computing, 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 4pm with welcome presentations throughout the day. Visitors will also have the opportunity to take campus tours, find out more about student life 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 Riseholme Park and the Cathedral Campus will be able to do so by taking one of the organised coach tours.


For potential students eager to find out at 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 developments at 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.”
