    Hey, some of my friends have said they're going to visit the uni after recieving their offers.

    Currently, I have all my offers, so just wondering, do universities invite you to these days?

    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.
