We are, this year, holding two consecutive Open Days in June, on Thursday 16th and Friday 17th.
These events are ever more critical to our success at recruiting undergraduate students and all who are involved are working hard to ensure applicants visiting us for the first time leave with the right sort of impression.
Open Days remain a key part of our recruitment activity and statistics show they have an increasingly important bearing on where a prospective student chooses to study. Ranked as the best Open Day in the UK by the annual Higher Expectations Survey brings an extra expectation here at Bath which I know we can live up to.
What our visitors see and experience at an Open Day influences application decisions and we know that applicants who have attended one of our Open Days are more likely to make Bath their first choice as they have been impressed with the warm welcome from our staff and students, and with the wonderful facilities and campus we have to offer.
As we are this year aiming to run two successful events on consecutive days, the Open Day planning team are seeking colleagues willing to help at Welcome Points and to work alongside Student Ambassadors at various locations across campus. If you can offer to help or want to find out more please email Events Assistant Anna Mundell email@example.com or call x5985
Welcoming visitors on Open Day is really rewarding and it is very energising to experience first hand the enthusiasm of so many applicants to win a place at Bath. Your help and support would be appreciated.
Staff parking and Travel to campus
For those coming to campus on 16 and 17 June, please bear in the mind the extra pressure on the surrounding roads, car parking and public transport we can expect. If possible please consider public transport or car share as travel options.
Visitor cars will be directed to East, South and West car parks as normal where they can park or be directed on to over flow car parks on the grass fields. All parking is free on Open Days in all of the University’s car parks.
For those staff arriving later in the day who may struggle to find space to park, Security Services have allocated K car park for you to use. K car park is located to the rear of Brendon Court. See map.
This car park will not be staffed and there is no need to use a special pass. Spaces in this car park will be on a first come first serve basis.
Many thanks for your help.
