Book on to our Open Day here
Come to explore everything the University of Hull has to offer at a series of Open Days this summer. There will be subject sessions, demonstrations, campus tours and a Festival Square with live music and food trucks. And that’s not all – prospective students travelling more than 20 miles can claim back their travel costs.
The next Open Days will be held on Saturday 10 June and 8 July with future dates in October. Vouchers for food and drinks are also provided for your visit.
There is still time to register and find out how to claim back travel expenses. Travel costs are reimbursed up to £125 for those who travel over 20 miles to a University of Hull Open Day, as part of the University’s drive to help applicants during the cost of living crisis.
Chrissa Beaumont, the University’s Executive Director, Student Recruitment and Marketing, said: “At the University of Hull, we are committed to making our campus inclusive and accessible to everyone.
“We know that young people want to experience a few universities before deciding where to go, and the costs can really mount up.
“Visiting a university to get a sense of what student life might be like for you is such an important part of the university application process. We want to give as many people as possible the option of visiting us by helping them out with costs, including travel costs for those who live further away.”
To help with the rise in fuel costs, this year our visitors can now claim 25 per cent more travel assistance – whether they're coming by car, train or bus.
“We hope that by offering a travel grant, students and their families will feel that attending an open day with us is affordable.”
At an Open Day, prospective students can learn more about their chosen course, explore the University’s campus and chat to current students in order to discover what it’s really like to live, study and socialise at the University of Hull.
Chrissa said: “There is a real buzz on campus during Open Days. There are so many staff and students who are keen to share their love for the University and city – and our visitors are often surprised by the strength of feeling here.
“We are also proud that, over the past year, Hull has been recognised for its diverse and inclusive community on campus and we continue to invest in our student experience.
