    Open days - what are those? Must I be invited? What kind of assessment can I be exposed to etc.?

    I know literally nothing about those so called open days - we have nothing similar in Sweden.

    thanks

    Open Days are basically just days when you can visit the uni and have a look around and there will be teachers and students to talk to and you'll get the chance to ask questions, see halls etc. It's just an opportunity to get a feel of what life and studying at that particular uni really is like. You do not have to be invited !!

    You have Open days that you can go to before applying, to find out more about the uni and their course etc....and then you have the open days where those people are invited who are being offered a place, or are under consideration to be offered a place, and are there for similar purposes, but you may also have an informal interview, or a formal one with an admissions tutor. it depends on what uni and course youve applied to.....not all courses will require formal interviews, and not all unis will interview applicants for a particular course......what the interviewer may ask depends on what course it is that youve applied to

    I've heard many universities call them the same thing.

    Open day- for people who've not applied and are just wanting to get a feel for the place

    and

    Open day for applicants - when you have an offer, you might be asked to do and look round again, get more information, meet the staff, have an interview.
