Lincoln to hold additional open day after 10,000 visitors so far
Open day flag The University of Lincoln will stage an additional undergraduate open day to meet demand from prospective students wanting to look around the campus and the city.

The University has so far held three open days this autumn for current year 13s who will sit their a-levels next summer.

More than 10,000 visitors have been welcomed to the Brayford Campus at these three events, held on Saturdays in September, October and November.

Demand was so strong that the University had to close registrations. Now the University of Lincoln will hold an additional open day, which will take place on Wednesday 12th December.

"Interest in our three open days so far has been incredibly high with students travelling from across the UK to tour our facilities, speak to our staff and students and see our beautiful city," said Elly Sample, Director of Communications, Development and Marketing at the University of Lincoln.
"We know there are many students out there who weren't able to make it to our previous open days. We have decided to hold this extra open day midweek so that anyone who would like to visit us but hasn't been able to do so will have that opportunity."

Open days enable visitors to speak to academics, current students and staff. Talks cover issues like fees and funding, accommodation and student life and there are tours of the campus, teaching facilities and accommodation running throughout the day.

Alongside the additional open day, the University has also extended its informal visit days, which will run every Wednesday until the end of the year. People can simply drop in from 10am-midday for a short tour of the campus or sign up for talks and a tour starting at 1pm.

The University will also have a presence at this year’s Lincoln Christmas Market.
