UP-COMING OPEN DAY TO SEE VISITORS FLOCK TO UNIVERSITY

 

Around 2,000 visitors are expected to attend an open day at the University of Lincoln’s Brayford Pool campus next weekend.

 

With potential students travelling from all over the country, visitors can attend the day on Saturday 22nd January to discover more about the courses and many other aspects of university life.

 

Art and Design, Animal Management and Welfare, Forensics, Journalism, Games Computing, 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 4pm with welcome presentations taking place 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 Rebecca Coulton, the university’s Schools Liaison & Recruitment Officer. “Just call in to the Brayford Pool Campus and take a look.”
