The last open day this year aimed at school leavers applying for university will be held at the University of Lincoln in Hull this weekend.


The university stages five open days every year to enable prospective students to meet the tutors and see for themselves the facilities and the city where they could be studying for three years.


On Saturday (14th May) the Hull Schools of Art & Design, Media Technologies and Health and Social Care will be opening their doors and offering tours and information on the many courses available.


The schools offer a wide range of degrees in subjects including Graphic Design, Web Design, Multimedia Technology, Social Work and Animation.


Registration will take place at the Derek Crothall Building, George Street, between 10am and 11am and will be followed by talks about student life, the Students’ Union Co-operative, accommodation, finance and student support.  


Refreshments will be available and presentations and tours by the schools will take place after lunch, finishing at 4pm.


“Prospectuses and web sites are all very well but there’s no substitute for a visit to the real thing,” said Rebecca Platt, Hull marketing officer.


Hull is a really great student city and the university is situated right at its heart.  Combining the location of Hull and one of our courses should offer an outstanding student experience.”
