Booking Open Days

This is the time of year to start thinking about university Open Days which usually start in June and go on until September or October. Most universities have already started to take bookings for Open days in June, so it is worth going to their websites and registering now for particular sessions, so you don’t miss out. You not only get to look round the university, accommodation and campus, but you can go to talks about the admissions process which are really useful and give you the facts about which GCSEs and A levels are required, and cut-off points for the UKCAT and BMAT tests.

I found it really useful last year and looked around 5 or 6 universities, so it was easier to narrow down my choice to my top 4 when I filled in my application in September.   image from Below are links to some of the Open Days.

University Open Days

Tomorrow I’m going to a university fair at Staffordshire University, where there will be lots of talks about different courses and representatives from different universities. I’m hoping to get some useful information about the different types of medical courses on offer.
