20th April 2000




An open day at the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside on Wednesday (26th April) is set to attract at least 800 students to the Lincoln campus.


But the total number of visitors could be twice that figure with family and friends also coming to view the university’s facilities and on-campus accommodation.


Wednesday’s open day will be held just two days before the final UCAS deadline for students to choose where they will study for the next three years, and organiser Jacqueline Mayer is confident they will be impressed by what they find at Lincoln.


“It will be great to see so many faces at the open day,” said Jacqueline, who is education liaison manager. “We are expecting quite a number of visitors, but there will be plenty of opportunities for students and parents to chat with academics about courses, or find out all about life at the Lincoln campus from our student ambassadors.”


The new £5.5 million science building will open in September and will house the university’s food, science and environmental programmes. The campus recently hosted a special science open day as part of National Science Week.


The Lincoln campus will be open to the public between 10am and 3pm on Wednesday for subject talks, tours of the campus and the chance to chat to current students about their experiences.


Talks will be repeated throughout the day with welcome talks at 10am and 12.30pm.
