Student from Oxford Brookes University

Oxford Brookes University Open Day

Going to university is a big decision. From courses to accommodation, and everything in between, there’s a lot to consider when finalising your university choices. Selecting the right city and university to study in is important. After all, you’ll be making it your home for the duration of your course.

So, before you confirm your choices, you should do some research and find out more about the university and city that you’ll be living in. One way to do this is to attend university Open Days.

Attending an Open Day

The Open Days are a great way to not only visit the city and university to see it for yourself, but also an opportunity to talk to university staff, ask questions and get as much information as possible. This way, you can make an informed decision as to whether that university or course is right for you.

One university you might like to consider studying at is Oxford Brookes University. The university is located in the city of Oxford in central southern England. And this Saturday (3rd June 2017), Oxford Brookes University are holding an Open Day. They’re opening up all three of their campuses to all prospective undergraduate students studying in 2018.

The university will be open from 9am until 4pm on Saturday for you to have a look around the campuses, they’ll be sessions throughout the day that you can attend to learn more about the subject(s) you’re interested in, and they’ll be talks on student finance, accommodation and student life in general.
