Potential students from across the country and members of the
public will be descending on the University of Hull on Saturday
(October 13) during the latest Open Day.
As well as chances to see the facilities on offer at both the
Hull and Scarborough campuses, potential students and their
families will be able to find out more about how University of Hull
graduates have more chance than most of getting good jobs once they
The Sunday Times University Guide recently highlighted the fact
that University of Hull graduates have the second lowest
unemployment rate in the north of the UK, while more than 71% find
graduate-level jobs within six months of leaving.
There will be careers and employability talks at both campuses,
and at Scarborough, the Scarborough Employment Agency, which helps
students find paid work experience, will have a stand all day.
Other talks taking place will include departmental and
subject-specific sessions, while the Hull University Union will be
open to showcase the social opportunities available.
Technology will play a crucial role this year, with QR codes,
smart phone apps, Twitter and Facebook all being utilised to give
guests the best possible experience. Visitors to the Hull campus
will also be able to see the Odyssey art exhibition – 40 eight-foot
tall lime wood sculptures – as part of the ongoing Polish
Professor Glenn Burgess, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Learning and
Teaching, said: “Our open days give us the chance to show off the
University and all the great things we have to offer.
“Not only do we give prospective students and their families a
taste of the kind of academic excellence they can gain through
studying here, but also the wider university experience including
accommodation and some of our unique selling points like the
University Art Collection and our own TV studio.”
The Hull campus will be open from 9.30am and 3pm, and
Scarborough will be open from 10.30am to 3pm. Everyone is welcome,
and booking is not essential.
