University open days are coming up soon, but what are they all about? What should you bring? Are you going to get lost? Don’t worry, we’ve got it all covered in our handy guide below.
What happens when I arrive?
When you arrive at our Waterfront campus, you’ll be welcomed by our Student Ambassadors. On hand throughout the day, they’ll make sure you don’t feel lost or unsure. Have a chat with any of them about their university experience (they’re the ones to ask after all!) Look around the various stands in the foyer and find out about accommodation, the Student’s Union, finance and much more.
What do I need to bring?
Bring a friend or family member to your Open Day for a second opinion. Although it’s really your choice, they can offer some advice and point things out that you might have missed. It’s always good to have a second pair of eyes! Bring along a pen, comfy shoes (you’ll be walking around a lot) and a water bottle; all key to make sure that you’re comfortable.
What can I expect?
Throughout the Open Day, there’ll be plenty of talks to attend. Spend as little or as much time as you want attending these. You’ll be introduced to the University of Suffolk, find out about support available, and understand student finance. There will also be various subject talks throughout the day where you can meet course leaders and find out what will be expected of you on the course. Plan ahead, so that you can see as much as possible.
Will I be able to have a tour?
Of course, we want you to explore our beautiful waterfront location. Our Student Ambassadors will take you round our campus showing you all the modern facilities we have here. You’ll be able to see our library and on campus accommodation and get a feel for what it could be like to be a student at the University of Suffolk.
Whatever you choose, we hope you enjoy your Open Day here at the University of Suffolk. Chat to our Student Ambassadors and staff members and get a feel for the uni. Ask all the questions you want to, we want you to make an informed choice.
