I want to visit universities far away from home, especially liverpool hope university, but their open days aren't until the end of the year.

as they are far away it would cost a lot to visit and I wouldn't want to go all that way just for the day.

Any suggestions on what I can do?

You can contact the university and arrange a visit outside of the normal open days. The problem is at the moment it is holidays so people may well be away. You could possibly try for a date in late September when the students return. You can visit any campus to have a look around at any time. The difficulty you will have is seeing accommodation and arranging to see the department. Making arrangements in advance will allow you to save on travel costs. Many universities let out their accommodation during the summer break. That is an option so you can see what the accommodation is like. If the costs are too great you could look for virtual campus tours or videos on google of the university. If you have more than 1 university in the area you could try tying the universities together and going on successive days.

Hello!

Great to hear you want to come see our University!

When I was applying to Liverpool Hope for my undergraduate degree I also didn't have time to go to the open days as coming from Ireland it was difficult trying to find the time to come over.

We do have a virtual tour online, it shows you around our main campus on Hope and around our Creative campus during one of our open days. Its a great way to have an insight into the University if you can't make an open day! Here's the link - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4uI34t8Cmg :borat:

Also if you're worried about just coming for our open day, Liverpool is a great city for a family or friends weekend away, there are loads of activities to do such as walking along the docks, shopping in Liverpool One, Museums (The Beatles one as well :h:) and many other activities such as eating in one of the many restaurants or listening to musicians in bars.
Here's a link of the top 10 things to do in Liverpool https://www.tripadvisor.co.uk/Attrac...e_England.html

I hope this helps in making your decision clearer, seeing the University is an important part of choosing which one to study at so having virtual tours online help to give you a taster to University life!

Best of Luck with your choices!
