About the Open Day
There are many fantastic reasons to embark on one of our postgraduate courses, whether it’s to give yourself that extra advantage when applying for jobs, progress your current career or even if you just love your chosen subject and want to explore it further. If you are still undecided about your university choice, nothing will help you make your mind up more than attending an Open Day.
Our Open Day will provide you with a really good opportunity to see what our university has to offer - meeting tutors, walking around the inspiring campus, and taking a stroll into nearby Williamson’s Park or the historical city centre of Lancaster.
We know postgraduate study represents a significant investment for you, in time as well as financially. So, whilst you are on campus please do take the opportunity to talk to our passionate staff and student ambassadors: they will be delighted to give you their perspective on life as a student at the University of Cumbria in Lancaster.
Complimentary refreshments will also be provided for you and your guests on the day.
We hope you have a great day with us!
