Do you take parents to applicant open days/ uni open days or not? In my opinion I don’t think it really matters as much it’s nice to get a second opinion however it’d be interesting to see what other people’s opinions are on this though. ☺️

I went alone to all of my open days and I quite enjoyed it to be honest. It was nice in a sense to not have my parents passing their judgements and potentially affecting my decisions. However, it is also nice to go with someone in the sense that you do have someone to chat to about what they think and what you think and it’s just nice to spend the day together!

most people go with parents. but do what's best for you. you won't look strange or childish or anything for having them there. so it's up to you if you want them there really

It depends how you think you parents will act- will they pass judgement and try to convince you to go to one place or will they let you make you own choice?
When I was going to uni open days I went to some on my own and some with my Mum.

I noticed that when I was alone I was more likely to engage in conversation with faculty members and ask questions about the course. But when I went with my Mum it was nice to have some company at lunch time and on the journey. It was good because my Mum isn't the type of parent to think I should be doing a particular course or going to a particular uni so she was just there as company and because she wanted to see what universities were like. Many people go with their parents and I think as long as you stick to making your own decisions (doesn't mean you have to agree or disagree with your parents, just do what feels right) then an opinion from your mum and/or dad can be useful
