University of Bradford welcomes prospective students
29 June 09
Prospective students can get a taste of student life at the University of Bradford on Saturday 4 July as it holds its summer open day.
Throughout the day there will be several activities for the visitors, including tours of the campus, accommodation and academic facilities with several stands available to provide financial advice and information.
The visitors will be some of the first to view Bradford's new sport centre, see plans for Bradford's new communal student building, and view hovercraft and Robo dog displays by the School of Engineering, Design and Technology.
University of Bradford Vice-Chancellor, Professor Mark Cleary, said: "The open day is one of the most important factors when students are deciding where to live and study for the next few years. This is a great chance for students and their families to get a taste of what campus life is like. Our staff and some of our current students will also be on hand to guide them around and answer any questions.
"Due to the current economic climate, the open day may also benefit mature students may wish to re-train, gain new skills or develop old skills."
The University of Bradford's summer open day runs between 9.30am and 3.30pm on Saturday 4 July 2009. Visitors should register in the reception area of the Richmond Building, off Great Horton Road, Bradford. Free car parking is available on campus.
