"Your Open Day is an opportunity to find out everything you need to know about becoming part of our student community"

Professor Helen Langton, MBE, Vice Chancellor and CEO

Can I come along on the day if I haven’t registered?
Yes, please have a look at the schedule for Saturday events which will give you an idea of what times talks are happening so you can plan when to arrive (please note that this is subject to change).  Please come to the welcome desk where we will be able to register you for the event and give you all of the information that you need for the day. 

For evening events if you haven't registered please do not worry, just report to the registration desk when you arrive and they will register your attendance.

Am I able to bring a guest(s)?
Yes of course, friends and family members are welcome to join you at the event.  Where possible we fit everyone into talks but in the event that there are a lot of attendees we occasionally ask that just the registered person and one guest attend the talks.

Is there any financial support available for the travel costs for attending the Open Event?
Yes, the University can reimburse up to £50 of the costs for attending the event, for students travelling over 150 miles or for students meeting specific criteria. Please see the the information at Financial Support for Visiting the University for eligibility criteria and how to apply.

I am interested in more than one subject, is this okay?
Yes, there are academic members of staff representing all subjects based in Ipswich and at the Suffolk New College campus at the event.  Even if you don’t make a subject talk, our staff will be happy to talk to you on a one-to-one basis about the course.

Will I be able to view the accommodation?
Accommodation tours will be available throughout the event at our on campus accommodation.  Members of staff from our Student Life team will also be available to discuss other off-site accommodation options with you.  

Will I get a chance to speak to current students?
Yes, there will be plenty of opportunity for you to talk to current students. We will have a number of student ambassadors available during the day who will happily answer questions, as well as our Students’ union.

Are there any catering facilities?
Absolutely! There will be refreshments available during the event as well as a range of catering options across the waterfront available.

Will there be anyone I can talk to about my application?
