(Results from the Feed Forward 2012 Campaign)
1. You said you wanted to see on-campus facilities that were specific to your course.
We’ve created modular campus tours that allow you to choose which bits of campus you see. Many of you asked to see the facilities used by PGCE students, so we've made sure that's on offer.
2. You said you wanted to find out all the details on fees, funding and how to apply.
You'll be able to attend talks on all these topics, and there's a dedicated space for you to meet the people who can answer all these questions (Panorama Bar, Rootes, 1000-1400). We've also made it possible for you to look at an actual online application form and even to start your application at the Open Day.
3. You said you wanted to experience a real postgraduate seminar.
We made it possible for you to attend seminars with Chemistry, WIE, Mathematics and PAIS.
4. You wanted to meet staff and current students from your department.
We’re offering a comprehensive programme of events hosted by departments from 1430 onwards, and nearly all departments will be represented by staff and students at the Study Exhibition.
