"Visit each uni with an open mind"

"My greatest piece of advice would be to visit each uni with an open mind. It’s good to have done research about many aspects of each uni before you visit it, but there’s little point going to an open day somewhere that you’ve already decided isn’t suitable for you. At the same time, use it as an opportunity to ask questions about things that are not made fully clear online or in the prospectus. I think I went to 11 open days in the end… I admit I went way overboard! But the nature of the degree I wanted to do meant that I felt I had to do as much researching about the different universities offering it as possible."

Find out more about Offer Holder Open Days.

"I would highly recommend that you attend the Offer Holder Open Days. Obviously this is super important because you get even more of a feel for the course and you also possibly get to meet your course mates which is really nice, so when you start you’re not thrown in at the deep end, you already know some people which is always good."
