Hi guys,
I’m currently in year 12 and am about to start going to uni open days.

I’m just wondering if people go with their families/parents or if they go by themselves?

And what people wear? I presume just normal clothes but I wanted to make sure?

Im probably just overthinking here but any help would be great!
Thanks

Some go with parents etc and some by themselves, it's your own choice really! And yeah, I just wore casual clothes hope you have fun!

No-one is judging you at an Open Day - they just want you to see/appreciate their Uni and find out about their courses.
You can take parents - they quite like to see the Unis as well - many people do go with their families.

Hi randomperson345

Great to hear that you're planning to visit some universities, it's definitely the best way to get a feel for which place you'd like to study at!
You'll find some people attend with family, some with friends, and some people attend by themselves.
People just wear normal clothes, whatever you prefer to wear - my top tip would be to make sure you wear comfy footwear, as there will usually be lots to see such as facilities and accommodation, so that way you'll be comfy while you look around

Hey randomperson345!

These are some great questions - and certainly ones I had when searching for my University.

1) You can do whatever you would like! Many people do go with families, but many also go alone or with friends. It's nice to go with other people as they can offer different perspectives, but don't forget, it is you who will be at the University and studying. If you can, I would perhaps recommend going once with family and another alone, just to be sure and safe.

2) Wear normal, casual clothes! There's no need to don a suit or dress, nor a school uniform. You'll be exploring around campuses whilst those studying are there, and being in casual clothes helps you get into the zone and feel like you could be there.

I hope this helped - but feel free to ask more questions!
