It’s the middle of June, which means for a lot of people it is exam time. Some lucky people might already be finished with A Levels, and if you have then congratulations! If not then good luck with all your future exams and assignments 🙂
This week I’m going to talk to you a bit about Open Days and what you can expect to get out of them.
If you’ve applied for Edge Hill and are currently holding an offer then there’s a high chance you’ve already attended an Open Day or an Applicant Visit Day. But even if you haven’t there is still time to visit.
For everyone who is interested in applying to Edge Hill next year then there will be a number of Open Days throughout the academic year.

I can’t stress how important attending an Open Day can be.
When you accept your university offer you’re committing three years of your life to that uni, so it’s important that it’s the right place for you.
Even if you live quite far away I would recommend trying to make it to an Open Day (some universities reimburse the travel costs – they know how important visiting the university is!)
Attending an Open Day at Edge Hill was one of the things that made me 100% certain I wanted to study there.
In the same way, I went to some Open Days that showed me that a particular university wasn’t quite right for me. Try before you commit. It’s a huge decision, and you don’t want to find yourself having made the wrong choice when you can easily prevent it!
So what can an Open Day do for you?
Here’s my list of everything it helped me with:
- Learning about the different types of accommodation on campus and their costs
- Meeting the tutors who would be teaching me throughout my degree
- Learning about specific modules and assessments
- Finding out more about Student Finance
- Looking at all the facilities the university has to offer
- Getting a feel for the campus and if it was the right place for me.
An Open Day visit is invaluable, so if you’re thinking of becoming an Edge Hillian book yourself on to one today!

Hope you all have another amazing week. Until next time!
