Students looking to start a degree course in 2016 can gain a taste of University Centre Shrewsbury life at an Open Day this weekend.

As University Centre Shrewsbury’s first undergraduates near the end of Welcome Week, the institution will throw its doors open to the next intake of prospective students.

The Open Day will take place on Saturday, October 3, 2015, from 10.30am to 3pm at the University Centre’s main learning and research centre at Guildhall, Frankwell.

The day will provide the opportunity to visit the University Centre’s fantastic study spaces and accommodation, learn more about the courses and meet the course tutors.

Professor Anna Sutton, University Centre Shrewsbury Provost, said: “Attending an Open Day is a useful starting point for prospective students to research their options. They will be able to take part in taster sessions, have a one-to-one chat with academic staff and take the time to explore the academic facilities, living accommodation and the town. They can also find out more about the support available to help them during their degree, which can make a real difference to their careers.

“The day provides a chance to showcase Shrewsbury, and the supportive and stimulating environment students can enjoy here. This is an opportunity to view what University Centre Shrewsbury has to offer them and discover how we can help them achieve their full potential.

“They can find out for themselves what it would really be like to live and study here – it’s an ideal way of seeing whether Shrewsbury is right for them.”

University Centre Shrewsbury has been established by the University of Chester and Shropshire Council. All courses are accredited by the University of Chester.

Research, learning and teaching are aligned to local, regional and national needs, spanning four areas: medicine and health; sustainable business and community development; societal innovation, and design, heritage and the built environment.

Within these areas, courses offered include History, English, Applied Psychology, Business Management, Biochemistry and Sport Management.
