The University of Chester has announced that it will be holding a series of open days, covering all of its campuses, in a bid to attract new students. The open days, to be held at the campuses in Warrington and Chester are intended to give prospective students an improved awareness of student life and further education, as well as into the University in particular.
The first of the open days will take place at the University’s central campus in Chester and the Kingsway building and is scheduled for tomorrow, Saturday October 1. This will be followed a week later by a second open day, covering such courses as Education, Health and Social Care and Children’s Services, to be held at the Riverside building. The Warrington campus will also be open to potential students on that day.
The days will feature a variety of activities, including a guided tour of the campuses by a member of the current student body and a chance to examine the university’s leisure and accommodation facilities. Tents and other temporary structure set-ups will be provided in the grounds enabling those attending to secure refreshments, as well as the chance to participate in talks and sample lectures – which are intended to give them an idea of what day-to-day academic study at further education level is like.
To that end, visiting students are also being given full access to the study facilities available at the University’s campuses, as well as being allowed to have a look at the Student Union.
