Open days are the perfect opportunity to visit the university and find out more about courses, campus and student life. If you missed the RGU open day, these are the top 10 things you should do on the next open day on the 29th October!
1. Talk to Course Leaders
Course Leaders from all schools and departments are around campus to give you information specific to your course and to clarify the routes you will take and opportunities available to you.
2. Go on a Campus Tour
Students are waiting to take you around the modern campus to show you where you will be spending most of your time at university and all the facilities that are right here on campus. They can tell you the best place to grab a coffee, chill out or meet with friends.
3. Take the Shuttle bus and see accommodation
Shuttle buses were running every hour from campus into the city centre accommodation. You can see the route you will take from the city centre to campus and also get a chance to look at some accommodation available to you and maybe a potential home!
4. Check out the student exhibitions
Student work is displayed around the campus so you can see what kind of work you’ll be creating as part of your modules. On the day, forensic students had set up a crime scene and architecture students displayed their models. Work was also on display at Gray’s School or Art and in our Aberdeen Business School.
5. Speak to Current Students
What better way to find out about student life at RGU than asking a student? This is your chance to ask current students their real thoughts on studying here and also answer any non-academic queries.
6. Pick up everything
All the leaflets, brochures and books -pick them up! This is all useful info so make sure you grab them all.
7. Get all your questions answered
This day is all for your benefit so make sure you have left with all the information you came to get! Not only can you chat to course leaders but you can chat to our support services, accommodation, finance, SAAS, RGU:Union and many more services are there for you to chat to.
8. Have a BBQ and admire the campus
A BBQ was waiting outside for visitors to grab lunch. There was also a range of other options available inside the buildings such as Costa and Subway. For some lunch entertainment, we had a piper playing the bagpipes so you could enjoy some music whilst admiring the stunning views of the riverside campus.
9. See what’s going on!
Throughout the day there are various things going on. Over in Aberdeen Business School we had radio station Original 106 documenting the day as well as a digital fashion video playing and a moot court to watch. In the Faculty of Health and Social Care in the Clinical Skills Centre we had nursing students demonstrating real situations nurses encounter in hospitals.
10. Enjoy the Day!
