Frequently asked questions

Open Days are busy days, and it’s great to know as much as you can before you arrive. Below are the most frequently asked questions to help you get a head start. 

I'm coming to an Open Day - do I need to attend all day?

Open Days are flexible events in which you can come and go as you please. However you will be sent out an agenda prior to the event so we always recommend that you check the timetable for the specific talks for the courses you are interested in and to also allow time for campus and accommodation tours should you wish to participate.  Always read the agenda thoroughly to ensure you make the most of your day and, if you are restricted on time, to ensure that you get the most from your visit. 

Can I park on campus for an Open Day? (Stoke on Trent and Centre of Excellence Stafford)

Yes, there is a car park on campus which is open to visitors on an Open Day. Parking restrictions are lifted for Open Days so you do not need a permit. (Stoke and Stafford) Although there are ample spaces, parking is on a first come first served basis and we cannot guarantee a space. 

Can I park on campus for an Open Day? (Centre of Excellence Shrewsbury)

Our Centre of Excellence Shrewsbury is within the grounds of Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and is a separate building just past the main hospital buildings. As this is the case the car parking is chargeable. Pay and display meters are on the main car park and you can make the payment before you leave.

Can I bring family and friends to the Open Day?

Yes; family, children and friends are welcome to all of our Open Days. We will even provide free tea/coffee for you and your guests.  

Can I just turn up on the day?

Yes. We do recommend pre booking your place at an Open Day so that you can plan your day in advance, however if this is not possible you are more than welcome to join us on the day. 

Is there food and drink available?

Yes, we have catering facilities across campus offering a range of food and refreshments. We will also be providing free tea/coffee for our guests at all of our Open Days.

I haven't decided which course yet, can I go to more than one subject talk?

Yes, the subject talks are repeated in the morning and afternoon so you will have the opportunity to attend more than one. In addition to this, you can chat to as many of the course tutors as you like.
