October Open Day for undergraduate courses
Swansea University will open its doors to prospective 2009-entry undergraduate students later this month, at an Open Day on Saturday, October 25.
The Open Day, held from 9.30am until 3.30pm, will give a flavour of more than 50 wide-ranging subjects on offer at the University – from American Studies to Zoology.
Staff will be on hand to give advice on course options, and potential students will be able to talk to department admissions tutors. There will be advice available on admissions procedures, student finance, studying in Europe, graduate careers, and support available for disabled students.
Current students will lead tours of the University campus and sports facilities and the Students’ Union will give talks on student life.
Accommodation is always an important consideration for applicants and their families, and visitors can explore the range Halls of Residence on campus, or take a student-led coach tour to the Hendrefoelan Student Village accommodation.
There will also be sessions for parents on tuition fees, student loans and grants, living costs and welfare.
The University’s Student Recruitment Manager Barrie Clark said: "Choosing where to study is a big decision and we recommend visiting the universities you are interested in, to find out which course and institution is best suited to your individual needs."
"Open Days give a good insight into what’s available course-wise and what your career prospects will be like, and you can also find out more about the practical side of living away from home for the first time."
