Prospective students invited to start their own ‘Chester story’ at University Open Day.

Posted on 21st May 2017

The University of Chester is offering prospective students the chance to take their first steps in their very own ‘Chester story’ at its latest Open Day. 

On Saturday, June 3, the University is opening its doors once again at all its Chester campuses to the next potential intake of undergraduate and postgraduate students, giving visitors the chance to find out why it was recently ranked top 10 for both academic experience and student welfare as well as fifteenth for overall student experience (Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey, 2017). 

During the day, visitors will have the opportunity to find out more about the wide range of courses on offer by taking part in taster lectures, demonstrations and facility tours, and putting their questions to some of the University’s industry-active and award-winning academics. Student-led campus tours will also allow visitors to explore first-hand the fantastic facilities available at the University’s residential Parkgate Road Campus. 

Discussing the importance of Open Days in the university decision making journey, Vicky Griffiths, Marketing and Recruitment Coordinator, said: "Attending an Open Day is a useful starting point for prospective students researching their options. Not only does it allow them to see the facilities on offer, but also put their questions to the experts. Going to university is a big decision, that’s why we’ve designed a programme of activities that focuses on all areas of university life. 

“Subject sessions, one-to-one chats with staff and students and campus tours will allow visitors to get a real taste for the University of Chester experience, what it means to be a student here and how the University can help them achieve their potential.” 

The Open Day will run between 10am and 4pm. To book a place, or to find out more, head to www.chester.ac.uk/book
