    I went today! Guessing you'll be going to the same one
    A couple of tips: It was completely packed, so if possible have a (shortish) list of where you really want to go and go to those first
    There's little point just walking around grabbing all the prospectuses you can see (trust me they're soooooooo heavy!) and feel free to say no thanks if you're not interested!
    If you're genuinely interested in hearing more then get them to scan your barcode/fill out their form, but otherwise they'll just spam you!
    Question wise, it was mostly admissions tutors there so anything about the applications process etc. Would be good to ask, whether they have a high weighting on GCSEs, PSs etc. But detailed questions about the modules of an obscure degree they're probably not gonna know about!
    You can also ask about the benefits of doing *specific course/apprenticeship* with them rather than their competitors and that sort of thing Their answers, beyond the obvious what they say, will often say quite a lot about them!

    Totally agree about making the most of it, we were only there for an hour and like I say it was packed so we didn't really get to make the most of it and I already regret it!
