Open Days are an exciting chance to find out more about the university / college you’re considering studying at and start to decide whether it’s the right place for you. You’ll get the opportunity to explore the campus, discover the courses on offer, learn about student life and so much more. To make the most out of the day, here are our top 5 things we recommend that you do:
1. Chat to Student Ambassadors
On the day, there will be lots of Student Ambassadors around the campus. Make sure you take the chance to talk to them about what life is like at Pearson College London. They have a first hand experience of what it’s like studying a degree, so make the most of their knowledge and experience!
2. Make notes and take home any brochures
Open Days can sometimes feel like an information overload with so many important things to remember. It’s a good idea to take notes during subject talks and pick up a prospectus and any useful brochures to take home with you.
3. Ask lots of questions
As well as talking to Student Ambassadors, there will also be Applicant Advisors and Tutors to answer your questions. Whether it’s about the modules you’ll study on the course, or how to apply through UCAS, there will be someone available for you to get your questions answered.
4. Make sure you attend one of our industry talks
One of the most exciting things about attending an Open Day at Pearson Business School or Escape Studios is that you’ll get to hear from our amazing industry speakers. Previously, we’ve had guest speakers from Deepmind for Google and Clifford Chance LLP, as well as Blue Zoo and Creative Assembly.
5. Ask yourself: Can I imagine studying here?
Once you’ve looked into the details of different courses and have discovered what is right for you, it might be a good idea to ask yourself if you could imagine studying at your chosen institutions. Take into consideration student life (including clubs and societies), accommodation (are there suitable student halls, could you commute?) and any other things that are important to you.
