University open days

For most students – in Britain, and indeed in any other part of the world – their three or four years at university will be a major landmark in their lives. Their degree will represent the pinnacle of their academic achievements. It is also where they are likely to acquire a close group of friends who will remain with them for the rest of their lives. And they will, inevitably, be stamped by that elusive characteristic that every university imparts to those who pass through its doors.

 It is vital, therefore, that you choose a university that suits you in all ways – a university where you can thrive academically, where you feel comfortable, and where you can enjoy all the opportunities available.

Choosing a university is an important, life-shaping decision – too important to bungle through lack of research.

You can, of course, glean a huge amount of information about universities from the outside – through their reputation, by studying their details on the Internet, from your school, from lists and league tables, and from what students attending these universities tell you. With such information, you can narrow down your selection ahead of making your choice of six universities on your UCAS application form.

But nothing can beat visiting a university personally, and the best way to do this is to attend an open day.
