  2. What time do you open?

    For our Open Days which begin at 10am: we're happy to welcome you from 9.15am, so why not come early, grab a cup of tea/coffee on us and plan your day in the comfort of our campus. If you are interested in attending a specific talk, we recommend you arrive in good time before the talk begins so that we can give you an introduction to the day along with a programme and a map before you explore what we have to offer.

    For Open Days at other times: opening times are always clearly displayed beside the event date (where listed) and on the booking form.

  4. Can I bring relatives, friends or children along with me?

    Absolutely, in fact we recommend it! When you start a course at Anglia Ruskin they will be a huge support to you so do bring them along so they can see where you will be studying too. The more the merrier!

  5. Will I get to see where I will be studying?

    It's really important that you get to see the areas where you will be studying at University as it can make a big difference to your final decision. Most departments will be running tours of their facilities on the day but if there is anything you want to see, just ask a member of staff or a Student Ambassador and they will be happy to show you.

  7. Do you offer talks and tours for every course?

    Undergraduate Open Days
    We offer as many course specific talks and tours as possible. Where a course doesn't offer a specific talk/tour you can still meet academics from your area of interest on a one-to-one basis throughout the day.

    Postgraduate Open Days
    We don't offer specific talks/tours for our Postgraduate Open Days. Instead, we offer direct access to academics from your area of interest on a one-to-one basis throughout the day.

  9. Will I get to meet students who are currently studying at the University?

    Yes! Our Student Ambassadors take part in helping us run our Open Days as we feel it is vital that you get a chance to find out what life on campus is really like! Student Ambassadors conduct our Campus Tours, staff our Information Desks and work in most department areas. If you also want to get a good insight into student life, pop along and chat to the Students' Union representatives on the day.

  11. Does it matter if I don't book my place, as I don't know if I'll be able to attend on the day?

    Don't worry if you don't have time to register ahead of the day, we'll just need to take a few details from you on your arrival.

    The benefit of registering before the event is that we'll send you an instant e-ticket to the email address you gave us. If you bring this e-ticket with you on the day (printed or on a smartphone) you can skip the queues on arrival and spend more time exploring the campus.
