    your friends probably are referring to open days, in which case unis do have open days around june/july time, so it may be a good idea to visit your firm/insurance uni if you already haven't to get a feel for what uni might entail.

    Likely so, but these days are said to be more relevant to an individuals course, like a taster day type thing.

    Ah I see, probably depends on the uni/course but standard uni open days have students/staff from each department ready to chat with you about the course and give your tours of the department!

    I worked in my department for open days and it gave me a good chance to chat with prospective students. I'd reccomend open days for sure haha

    Hey, that clears it up James! I'll have to see if there's any open days. I just need to ensure that I pick the right insurance offer, so it's best I actually visit.

    For some of my offers, they're doing a post-offer visit day (I'm going to one of them) because it's designed to help you decide whether to accept the offer or not. I went to the open days in summer, then applied, then got my offers, then got invites to some post-offer visit days.
