We asked our students what they thought were the top reasons to visit us for an Open Day. Here's what they said:
Get a feel for the Campus
"When you arrive for an open day, you will be able to tell if the universities layout and design is something that you like and can see yourself living there, without visiting you can’t get this feeling. They always say, when you know, you know – you get a gut feeling on an open day, whether it’s the right place or not."
Meet Tutors and students
"Listening to students’ advice and perspective on the course and experience is vital, learning from experience will help you feel at ease about making the transition to university. Also, chatting to tutors and learning more in depth information about your course will help you ensure you’re choosing the right course for you."
Explore the facilities
"At the University of Hull, we’re undergoing a £300million project to improve our buildings and facilities. The Brynmor Jones Library boasts the best views of the city, with its amazing 7 floors. This is a view that cannot be appreciated from a prospectus."
Discover Hull and Student Life
"Open Days offer you the insight into what the city has to offer. With student ambassadors, tours into the city and Q&A’s available throughout the day, you can really gauge student life at Hull."
Go on a tour
"Whether it’s a tour of the city, our campus or accommodation, exploring the facilities with a student gives you a real insight into where you will be spending your time when at university."
Assess the student support services
"Moving away from home can be a daunting process, sometimes you might need extra help and support so finding out the university’s welfare department has to offer is always helpful. Speaking to the staff and seeing if they are friendly and approachable will help ease you in the moving process."
