Alright, so I applied for an Open Day at Aston University probably last month and still haven't received a reply. This is odd as on the website it states that I should receive an immediate response..Name:  Capture.PNG

When's the open day?

It may be that you incorrectly entered the email, but if not then it wouldn't hurt to ring them?

The Open Day is on the 5th of July. I've sent them an email but received nothing back

Also regarding the email, I used the same email to apply for Warwick's open day and got an immediate response

Best method is to ring the university directly. Idk any other way sorry. And that's good Warwick replied (heard they're really good )

Thanks for the tip
I've done some digging around and found something. It seems that Aston are using this service called, "Eventbrite" and so I've now received confirmation. Thanks very much for you help

Right so in order to overcome this I used this link -----> https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/open-...ts-62504138561
That link will let you book an open day for this coming open day on the 5th of July

I actually have a few questions. The first most important one would be the accomodation prices. I'm new to all this and was looking at some accomodations for the future. I see places such as "The Old Fire Station" look rather nice but are priced at £160 per week and I'm wondering how this is going to be paid. Is it the student loan maintenance (I need an explanation as to what they are lol).

The second question would be, what are the best societies to join? I was looking to maybe start swimming and the gym here

I believe you have to find accommodation fees yourself by part time job or from your family/savings. Not entirely sure (another anon btw, haven't begun uni yet)

Sorry for any confusion,

The FAQ section on our website is referring to registration rather than pre-registration, perhaps we should make that more clear. I can see you’ve found the Eventbrite link, so either you received the email I sent this morning to all pre-registrants or stumbled across the website changes we made.

Your maintenance loan can be spent on whatever you need during the course of your degree, but most will put it towards their accommodation. It is bracketed based on your plans for where you’ll be living and studying, you can find more information here. We also have a number of supplementary talks on our open day such as student finance & clubs and societies, you’ll receive these in the full programme nearer to the time.

In terms of clubs & societies we have over 150 on campus and do have a swimming team. We have a 25m pool on campus which has been operational since 1902 making it one of the oldest in Britain, don’t worry it’s been looked after and refurbished when needed.

If you have any questions just quote me and I’ll get back to you.

Josh
