What to expect from an Open Day
Open days are back, and boy have we missed them! An open day gives you a chance to really soak in the atmosphere of a university campus and helps you to imagine yourself as part of the university community.
The open day is the one-stop-shop for all information relating to the university - course specific talks and facilities tours, tours of accommodation, information about support services and extra-curricular activities as well as an opportunity for you to meet students and staff.
Choosing a course and a university is one of the biggest decisions you will ever make, you are investing in your future and the open day is like your test drive.
Here are some of the best things to do on an open day:
Subject talks - You can attend talks about specific subjects that you might be interested in. These sessions are normally delivered by an academic lecturer from that subject, and they will tell you all about what the course will be like. Not only that but the subject talks also cover advice on your application including what might be important information on your personal statement or information about the interview process.
Support and university life - You might want to find out about some of the support services available at the university, such as help for disabled students. Meet the people who offer the help that you might need and take their contact details as you might have more questions before the course starts.
Accommodation - If you are considering moving to the university you will need to think about your preferences when it comes to choosing accommodation. Seeing the sizes of rooms and social spaces might make it easier to create your shortlist.
Campus/facilities tours – whether you are doing English and want to have a good look at the Library, or you are doing physiotherapy and want to check out the facilities in the School of Health & Life Sciences you will have facilities that are related to your course that you will want to see.
Talk to current students - Current students are always on hand during open days and they can be a great source of insider information. Ask them about the university experience like the nightlife, where has the best or cheapest food/drink, and what they really think about the university. It’s even better if you can talk to someone on the same course as you.
Here are some top tips for building the foundations you need to be successful in the year to come:
1. Make sure your stationary game is on point. Whether you love a good life-planner, or just simple pen and paper, now is a good time to make sure that you have everything that you need for lectures, seminars, and revision.
2. Give yourself a goal or two. If you have a paper diary or just using the notes on your phone, set yourself a few goals for the year; think of a couple that are manageable and something that you can look back on at the end of the year. You can use SMART targets to create something that is structured. You’ll feel a great sense of achievement at the end of the year if you complete these goals.
3. Log into your accounts- the long summer often means that we don’t use our student accounts and it’s easy to forget your password. It’s best to refresh them now rather than at the beginning of a seminar when you are rushing to get logged on. You can also make sure that they are super secure by testing it out here: howsecureismypassword.net
4. Is your finance sorted? Even if you were at uni last year you still need to reapply for student finance. If you didn’t do this earlier in the year it is a good idea to do it now so that you have money for the start of term. If you are a new student, you might want to shop around for the best student bank account.
5. Check out the Teesside Advance store. Each year you will receive £100 credit to spend in the Teesside Advance store. See what books or resources you might need for your course and get spending.
There are lots of things to consider when choosing a course and university. How big is the campus? Where is the accommodation? What are the facilities like for my course?
Attending an open day is a great way of discovering if Teesside University is the right match for you.
Join us at our campus open day on 9 and 13 October, or 13 November.
Academic staff are on hand throughout the day to chat about the course(s) you are interested in, and student finance and disability services can discuss any support you might need whilst studying here.
Visit accommodation, take a tour of the campus, check out our state-of-the-art facilities, chat to current students and find your perfect match here with us.
We love Teesside, we hope you will too.
