Plan your OPEN DAY with purpose
Welcome to
the University
of Gloucestershire
How to get the
most out of
your Open Day
Oxstalls Campus
Use the following pages to plan the
details of your day.
• Structure your day with purpose
using our planner
Did you know?
94% of all University of
Gloucestershire students are
in employment or further education
within six months of graduating.
Our students achieve this by being
supported in developing a ‘Future
Plan’ so they can advance quickly to
fulfil their future goals and ambitions.
Open days are the first stepping stone
on this journey – it’s a day where
people make decisions to help plan
their future.
This booklet will help you plan your
Open Day with the same sense of
purpose that our students use to
plan their time here. There are lots of
things to see, do and find out during
the day – we believe having a plan
really helps.
All campus facilities will be open for
you to visit throughout the day. Current
students will also be on hand to share
their own experiences.
Plan your day with purpose
• Plan your journey to arrive in time
for tea, coffee and cookies
• Research the courses you are
interested in (www.glos.ac.uk)
Academic staff, current students
and our Student Services teams will
be available in the Teaching Centre
throughout the day should you wish to
have a one-to-one chat with them.
• Think about questions you would
like to ask on the day
If you don’t know where to go, or have
a question about the university, please
ask a member of university staff or one
of our Student Ambassadors.
