Open Day at University of Leicester

June 2003
No 175

Wednesday 2 July 2003

The University of Leicester is staging an Open Day for parents, teachers and prospective students on 2 July.

The Open Day gives prospective students and their parents a sample of the many courses and facilities offered at the University of Leicester, and provides the opportunity for the University to highlight the strengths of its degree courses and their distinctive qualities.

Jacky Wetzig, Schools and Colleges Liaison Officer, said: "The day is well structured to include a wide range of activities and displays, beginning with an introductory talk and tour of the campus by current students. Throughout the day the Admissions Tutor or representative from each undergraduate course will provide an outline of what their course and department can offer. Visitors can hear about student life from students, and receive some reassurance on managing a student budget, safety and other topics of concern from staff in the Welfare Office. A talk on completing UCAS forms will be available. These talks prove very popular at Open Days, and seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis."

The Charles Wilson Sports Hall will be open all day with a range of displays and information on the City of Leicester, University Accommodation, Careers, Student Learning Centre, Study Support and much more. An information desk located in the foyer of the Charles Wilson Building will be staffed all day to answer any specific enquiries. Coaches will be available to take visitors to the halls of residence and self-catering accommodation.  Student Guides will be on hand to provide guided tours of the accommodation and talk to visitors. Tours of the Sports facilities are also available.

        Enquiries, booking forms and the programme can be found on and can be completed and forwarded to on-line. Copies of the programme for the day and further details are available from Jacky Wetzig, Schools and Colleges Liaison Officer, Admissions and Student Recruitment Office, 0116 252 2674 or by fax 0116 252 2447 or by email
