Students thinking about going to university can look round brand new facilities and hear about new courses at a Bishop Grosseteste University open day this Sunday (6th October).
The university has spent £4.3 million on a new accommodation building this summer as part of a £6.5m investment programme.
Visitors to the open day between 11am and 4pm on Sunday can see the new student residences at first hand and find out more about the courses on offer.
These include new single honours degrees in History and SENI (Special Educational Needs and Inclusion) and a new Psychology degree course which enrolled its first students this year.
Visitors to the open day will be able to speak to staff and students, go on a guided tour of the campus and even enjoy a minibus tour of Lincoln city centre.
There will be a rolling programme of presentations, DVDs and one-to-one meetings and visitors are encouraged to drop in at any time throughout the day.
The university’s student advice team will be available to talk to students and their families about issues such as student finance and the accommodation team will advise on places to live.
Lunch is available between 11.30am and 2pm and snacks and meals are available throughout the day from the Dining Room in Constance Stewart Hall and from Curiositea, the university’s Alice in Wonderland themed coffee shop, which has been extended and refurbished over the summer.
“It doesn’t matter how many prospectuses you read and how many websites you browse, there’s no substitute for actually visiting a university,” said Louise Stow, Student Recruitment Manager at BGU.
“Our campus in uphill Lincoln is a unique and beautiful place and we would encourage anyone thinking about studying at university to pay us a visit this weekend.”
A further open day will be held at Bishop Grosseteste University on Wednesday 6th November 2013.
