University Open Day

2 February 2019 (9.30am-3pm)

Welcome!

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

‌What can I expect on the day?

Third-year student Chloe Homewood gives her first hand experience of what to expect at Open Day

Watch Chloe's guide to Open 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

Can’t make it to this Open Day?

If you’re interested in studying Adult Nursing, Children’s Nursing or Midwifery and live near Burton-upon-Trent, it may be easier for you to visit our Burton Campus on one of their Open Days.
