    What sort of questions would you people ask when going to an applicant visit day? I'm not really the chatty type so am trying to construct a list of things I could ask about. :woo:

    Ask about the course itself; assignments, modules options and what makes that university difference and then ask about the university and the city itself, especially accommodation and living costs.

    Think about what your priorities are for your university.

    You might want to find out about the activities that go on for students within the uni and the city, or you might value the level of student support offered and the academic services available to you. I would personally recommend speaking to both the tutors/course leaders and any current students, in order to evaluate both the quality of the course/university and the student life and support you can get from there.

    You should definitely ask about what makes the course different or special to other universities' courses, as they do often differ in ways you don't realise! It's always good to get a tour of the university as well, so you can get a feel of the place and its facilities.
