What can you expect on the day?

Once you arrive at SRUC Scotland's Rural College for one of the open days, you can expect a packed day of campus tours, accommodation tours, subject talks and general talks covering topics such as financing your studies. Between scheduled events like these, you'll have chance to chat more informally to current staff and students, offering many opportunities to get your questions answered. You can also learn more about the facilities SRUC Scotland's Rural College has to offer - both course-specific ones and general facilities such as the library.

What questions should you ask at a university open day?

The short answer is anything you want. It's one of the best opportunities you'll get to have all your queries answered. Before you attend, it's a good idea to spend some time writing down questions you want answered. You could even break them down into categories. Ask students what they like best about SRUC Scotland's Rural College, and ask about the optional modules available on the course you're interested in. As you won't be able to see all the different accommodation on offer, you might want to ask about what other options are available. You can also ask more general questions about the local area, the transport connections and, of course, the nightlife. The staff and students at SRUC Scotland's Rural College are all friendly and ready to help, so don't be scared to ask.

What if you can't attend a university open day?

If you can't make any of the open days on offer at SRUC Scotland's Rural College, don't panic. Although everyone is now moving away from virtual open days, that doesn't mean there's nothing you can check out virtually. Have a look at the university website, where you'll find information about the course, campus and accommodation, including lots of photos and videos. You'll also find contact information for the different teams, so you can direct your queries to the right place. Open days also aren't the only opportunity to visit the campus and take tours. If you decide to apply to SRUC Scotland's Rural College, you'll have opportunities to attend applicant days, or taster days. These events will be more specific to the course you've applied for but will offer many of the same campus tours and accommodation tours available at the open days.
