WHY COME TO AN OPEN DAY?
University of Gloucestershire open days have been designed to inform and inspire you and to help you make the right decision about your next step. You'll find out what it's like to be a student here and how you can develop your own unique career plan.
A key feature of an open day is your chance to meet our team of student ambassadors. These current first, second and third year students will be on-hand to give you up-to-the-minute advice and guidance on what it's really like to study here. Find out anything from the best place for quiet study on campus to the hottest night spots, all from the people who've been here and experienced it already.
Uni Essentials sessions cover everything you need to know about the University of Gloucestershire. As part of this, the Big Three talk will tell you the key things you'll need to know to begin student life.
- How do I get onto my dream course?
- How can I afford to go to university?
- Where will I live?
Meet our lecturers and students and get a real insight into what it's like to study here. Take part in one of our Discover More drop-in sessions to get hands-on experience.
