Anglia Ruskin University is opening its doors to people who want to find out more about the higher education opportunities available to them.

The forthcoming Open Day on Saturday 24 June will allow potential students of all ages and backgrounds to find out more about undergraduate study.

Members of the University’s teaching and administrative staff will be offering individuals information to help them make informed decisions about study options.  The Faculties involved in the Open Day include Arts, Law and Social Sciences, Science & Technology, the Institute of Health and Social Care, the Ashcroft International Business School, and Education.

In addition to the academic areas, other departments including accommodation, admissions and libraries will be staffed with experts; and the sports facilities and language centres will be ‘on show’ for the day.

Organiser and College Liaison Manager Rachel Nedwell said:

“Anglia Ruskin will be opening its doors to potential students and their families during the forthcoming Open Day to give those attending all the information they need about courses and, equally importantly, to give them a taste of university life. It is a day for those considering higher education and for those interested in career progression.”

“The university has invested heavily in its campus facilities for the benefit of the students – and visitors are usually very impressed with what they see.”

“Our message to anyone considering degree choices is to come and talk to us. We deliver high quality, work-related teaching and learning programmes that have a clear link to employment - which is what most of the individuals we speak to are looking for in a university course.”

Anglia Ruskin University Open Days generally attract 800-1000 prospective students to the campus plus members of their family and friends. There are four Opened Days staged during the year. Each one is a key recruitment day for the University.
