Choosing a university will be one of the biggest decisions you will make about your education.   Attending an Open Day is a great way to get a feel for the campus, the students and the courses on offer.  You can spend the day exploring the campus, surrounding areas and of course asking questions.  The day is an informal and fun way for you to get an insight into university life.
