i’m applying for physiotherapy so i’ve already been to all 5 of my uni choices twice... once for an open day and once for an interview. Should i still attend the applicant days? i don’t want to have to go to all of them again if there’s no point, it’s very costly for my parents to get me there and i already know which one is my top choice

Hi jemmalucy_,

I would definitely go to the applicant day of your first choice uni - you will be able to meet academics, ask them questions, and find out more about the course and university. I'd also consider going to the applicant day of your insurance choice, just in case things don't pan out and you have some questions you'd like to ask them in case of this happening

It's up to you but it may be unnecessary seeing as you already know which one you are going to Firm.

I'd recommend looking at accommodation for your top choice, and other stuff that interest you. What uni is your top? I also applied for physiotherapy.

No. Focus on getting the grades for the university you already know you want to go, rather than going on day trips.

Get in touch with the unis and enquire how exactly the applicant open days differ from regular open days. It'll be different for each uni. Determine if it's worth your time and money.

If you're unsure about a choice, maybe go to help make your mind up. But if you're pretty clear and have visited them all, that won't be necessary. Seeing your top choice again wouldn't hurt but there's no real need to go to all of them

Thank you for the advice, I’ll look at phoning or emailing them soon
