University set to welcome thousands for summer Open Day

Thousands of prospective students and their families will visit the University of Hull on Saturday for the first of four Open Days designed to offer a flavour of University life. 

Our Open Days offer the perfect opportunity to find out what studying in Hull is like, discover the vibrant, beautiful campus and gain an insight into University life. 

Visitors, on Saturday, July 15, will be able to meet current students as well as take tours of the city, campus and accommodation, among other things. 

University lecturers and professors will also be on-hand to offer subject and course information. 

Jack Jamieson, a Mechanical and Energy Engineering student, said:

"When I came to Hull for the first time, it was on an Open Day and I was just wowed by the whole University and everything on the campus."

Leah Cox, a Physics student, said:

"As soon as I looked round it, I knew it was the place for me.  

"Everybody was so welcoming, so friendly. The staff are really, really supportive here."

Tours of the campus will also be on offer, inviting visitors to view the University’s state-of-the-art facilities. 

A £200-million campus improvement programme is well underway, giving our students inspiring places to study, state-of-the-art teaching facilities, high-quality accommodation and fantastic opportunities. Students are already benefiting significantly from this investment. 

Our investment includes a £28-million investment in the Brynmor Jones Library, new £30-million on-campus residences for 562 students, a £9-million investment in music facilities, including industry-standard equipment and a 400-seater concert venue. 

We are also investing £16-million in our sports facilities, already underway and our £28-million Health Campus opens this summer. 

Out of all the Universities that I looked at, none of them had anything that compared to the facilities that Hull offered.  Chloe Hammond, Modern Languages student, University of Hull

Chloe Hammond, a modern languages student, said:

"Out of all the Universities that I looked at, none of them had anything that compared to the facilities that Hull offered. I’m really proud to be a part of Hull and the University because of the wide variety of things that are happening in the city, with it being City of Culture. There’s a lot of things going on at the University and it is always improving its facilities with the students’ experience and interests at heart."

Visitors will also be able to attend a presentation about the University of Hull and student life here.  

Isobel Johnson, a Physics student, said:

"When I came to Open Day I was amazed – the campus, it’s really pretty, everyone seemed really friendly and my lecturers seemed to be at the Open Day wanting to talk on a personal level and get to know everyone."

Students will also be able to find out about finance, including bursaries and scholarships on offer. 

Subject stands will also be available in the newly refurbished Canham Turner.
