Students looking to start a degree course in 2018 can gain a taste of University Centre Shrewsbury life at an Open Day taking place on Saturday 21 October. As the newest undergraduates settle into their studies, the institution will throw open its doors to young people interested in studying in Shropshire’s county town. The day runs between 10am and 3pm at Guildhall, providing the opportunity to visit the study spaces, learn more about courses and meet course tutors. Visitors can also talk with current students about their experiences and learn about opportunities available through the Students’ Union.
Provost Professor Anna Sutton said, “Attending an open day is a useful starting point for prospective students to research their options. They will be able to take part in taster sessions, have a one-to-one chat with academic staff, and take time to explore the facilities.”
Courses include Applied Psychology, History, English, Musical Theatre, Primary Education and a number of Bioscience and Business courses. Visit ucshrewsbury.ac.uk/openday or call 01743 297185 for more information.
