For the fifth year in succession the University of Lincoln is expecting record numbers to attend the spring open day.


The number of prospective students and parents visiting the university’s open day on Saturday 2nd April has already reached 2,000 and there are still two weeks to go.


Open days are held regularly throughout the year to allow visitors to find out more about the various courses and facilities the university has to offer and, whether young or more mature, how to apply for a place.


Doors open at 9.30am for registration and welcome talks take place throughout the day with presentations about accommodation, student finance and courses, such as, politics, art and design, animal sciences, computing, journalism, business and forensic science.


The day includes guided 30-minute tours of the many facilities, given by current students.


Student accommodation, the new Great Central Warehouse Library, the media facilities, architecture building, science block, Students’ Union Co-operative and the sports centre are just some of the areas included on the tour.


“I believe the student numbers are increasing in relation to the university’s growing profile nationwide,” said Karen Raynes, UK Student Recruitment Manager.


“As a new university we are already well established and recognised for the quality of courses and facilities.


“Our portfolio of courses is continually updated and upgraded to ensure it responds to both student and business needs.”


It is not necessary for you to book onto the open day but if you would like further information please contact Karen Raynes on 01522 886046 or visit the university website www.lincoln.ac.uk.
