University Open Day

18 August 2018 
09:30 - 15:00

All main campuses

You can discover a warm welcome at our Open Day – whatever questions you’ve got, come and ask them and discover what life could be like for you on campus.

Come and have a chat with:

  • Academics who will teach you on your course
  • Support staff who can help you make the most of your university experience
  • Current students who will give you the real-life student low-down.

Let our student, and vlogger extraordinaire Cloe give you a sneak peek on what you can expect:

What can I expect on the day?

First things first – you’ll be welcomed by our teams on the registration desks – they’ll make sure you’ve got what you need and send you in the right direction.

Why not start with our Welcome talk? It’ll give you a great overview to the University and Students’ Union.

Take a look at the programme (available below) so you can plan everything you might need to fit in, including:

  • talks and tours for your chosen courses
  • fees and finance talks and information
  • careers and employability opportunities
  • student support information

Every Open Day is different, so take some time to grab a drink or bite to eat and see what’s on offer today… it might be ice-cream, summer games, sports sessions or hot chocolate!

What campus should I go to?

Our free shuttle bus service can take you between our three campuses if needed, but to make the best use of your time, head to the campus where your main subject will be taught. This isn’t a full list of our courses, so if you’re not sure where to go, give us a call!  0800 953 3222 or email: enquiries@wlv.ac.uk
