Plan your day in advance to get the most from the time available.
When you arrive, go to any of the main Open Day venues and pick up a copy of the programme, plus any additional information, from one of the helpdesks.
Check where you can find the information desks for the subjects that interest you, and also where the talks that you would like to attend are taking place.
Remember that registering your interest in an area of study on the booking form does not guarantee you a place for the relevant talk. Some talks might be very busy, especially during the morning, so keep in mind that most are repeated later in the day, and that these are often less busy. Where talks are full we will prioritise students over parents.
If you are not sure about anything just ask one of the student helpers in red t-shirts, one of our uniformed staff, or go to a helpdesk.
Choosing the right degree programme for you is an essential part of any Open Day.
Many subjects will be giving introductory talks to give you insight into what studying the degree involves.
Staff will also be available to answer any individual questions at the subject information desks.
You may want to use this opportunity to find out about the range of student facilities we offer (such as sports facilities or libraries).
If you plan to move away from home to go to university you may want to attend one of the accommodation talks or visit Pollock Halls of Residence during the Open Day.
You may also have questions about studying at university in general.
Advisers will be available throughout the day to answer any queries you might have about issues such as:
There will also be a series of general information talks included in the programme.
