Most information is available on the uni website but it's a good chance to get some details on accomodation as I think they keep it deliberately vague sometimes. So you could ask which is the most popular (oversubscribed) accomodation, what are your chances of getting your 1st or 2nd choice (or lower) and if it is your Insurance choice Uni, what are the chances of someone getting uni accomodation on campus (or close to lectures) if they don't Firm the Uni

Hey,
With regards to questions you should ask:

- Does your desired course have opportunities for a placement year or opportunities to travel and go abroad ( even if it is not for a year)?
- How are each of your modules assessed?
- What are the compulsory modules?
- What are the optional modules?
- Job opportunities after your course
- Part time job opportunities whilst studying?
- Any bursaries/financial help available?
- What are the teaching hours like? ( i.e. the balance between lectures, seminars, labs etc)
- What societies are available?
- What opportunities/services are available in the student union?
- Accommodations?

Hope this was helpful!!

Hi AnimalStudent,

In addition to the excellent reply by Nana K 22, I'd also ask what opportunities there are for gaining work experience through internships etc whilst you're studying.

During my undergraduate degree (Sports and Exercise Science) there were opportunities for both voluntary and paid work including internships which gave valuable practical experience. I actually asked about work experience/internships when I attended for an open day.

Hope this helps and please message any further questions you may have

Hey Animalstudent,

Glad you’ve got a list of questions going! The questions I asked at my Open Day were on:
> what are all the module choices?
> whats the structure of the course?
> any opportunities for personal development and work experience?
> what are the differences between the choices of accommodation?
> what’s the city like to live in?
> favourite places at the university and in the city?

Generally, my aim was to find out what current students thought of their course and their university and see where I could be living. I saw Open Days as a good way to get insight beyond the information available online. I’m studying International Development but these questions are quite generic so I hope they are useful to you.

Have a lovely time visiting the Open Days. All the best
