The Faculty of Media and Humanities at the University of Lincoln is inviting prospective students and their parents to an open day to find out more about the courses on offer and talk to current students and tutors.


People who have already applied to study Media Production, Journalism, English, History, American Studies and Drama at the university are being invited to the event on Saturday 1st April.


Each subject will have ‘taster’ sessions to give visitors an insight into their chosen degree.


Professor John Tulloch, Head of the Lincoln School of Journalism, says anyone interested in studying at the University of Lincoln will benefit from attending.


“This is a great opportunity   to find out more about our courses, talk to staff and students and see some of them in action,” said Professor Tulloch.


“Our aim is to give applicants a taste of what to expect if they decide to come to Lincoln and the opportunity to explore  what student life is like in Lincoln and the career opportunities they might expect to be opened up to them.


“Visitors will experience for themselves what it is like to work in our unique suite of newsrooms and studios and take part in realistic media workshops. Parents will also have a chance to meet the Dean of the faculty and teaching staff in an informal setting, and find out about the university’s exciting development plans.”


“We will also give a detailed briefing about the impact of the new arrangements for student fees and realistic information about student living costs.”


Classes and workshops will be held in Media Production, English, History, American Studies and Drama.


The open day will start at 10am for registration and finish at 4pm on Saturday 1st April. Anyone who hasn’t yet confirmed their attendance is asked to contact Anna Ward at the Faculty of Media and Humanities on 01522 882000.
