Open Days at Birmingham City University

One of the best ways to help you narrow down university choices is to attend university open days in advance of making your UCAS application. Open days provide the chance to talk with academic staff from courses which may interest you, see the facilities available to students and generally get a feel for where you could potentially be studying. Open days are a great opportunity to find out more information and ask any burning questions you may have that may not have been answered in the course literature, prospectus or website. It’s all about giving yourself the best chance of being in a position to make an informed decision when the time comes to complete your UCAS form.

Birmingham City University are holding open days on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th June. If you’d like to come along and find out more about the wide range of exciting courses on offer here, please visit the main website for more information and to register in advance.

If you can’t make our June events, there will be more opportunities to visit us with further Open Days on 22 and 26 August 2009 (for clearing) and 9 and 10 October 2009.

How to… decide which offer to accept

So you’ve received offers on your application choices. For some the decision of which one to accept is easy, but what if you’re still unsure of which one to accept? Is there anything you can do to help you make this important decision?

Have you had the opportunity to visit the universities you’ve applied to yet? If not, then why not contact them to find out if there are open days or visit days that you can attend. These events often provide a useful means of finding out more about the course you’ve applied to and the university environment itself. If the universities you’ve applied to are in other cities to your hometown, it also gives you the chance to have a look round the area and get a feel for whether it is somewhere that you’d like to spend the next three or four years!

Do you have any questions about the course that you feel you really need to ask before making your decision? Admissions Tutors and advice staff within universities are ready to help prospective students who need further information and help and understand the complexities faced when making such an important, and potentially life-changing, decision. Contact them – they’re there to help you and can provide you with additional information that may help you to weigh up your options. Here at Birmingham City University, the Choices team are here to help. Call us on 0121 331 5595 or email choices@bcu.ac.uk.
