Swindon residents invited to University open day

Local people are invited to visit the University of Bath in Swindon’s Oakfield campus to find out about the range of courses and evening classes on offer. Visitors will have the opportunity to chat to course organisers, meet current students, take a tour of the campus and pick up a prospectus. The open day will run from 10am-noon, Wednesday 24 May.

Since opening in 2000, more than 9,000 students have joined up for full- and part-time study at Oakfield. There are programmes in teaching and early years, social work, continuing professional development, innovation and enterprise.

Alongside its academic provisions, Oakfield runs a range of community projects, including evening classes, free public lectures, activity weeks for local schoolchildren and a crèche. In 2005 it launched its conferencing facilities.

The open day will be held in connection with the annual Adult Learner’s Week which runs from 22-26 May. Organised by The National Institute of Adult Continuing Education the week aims to encourage adults, of any age, to find out about opportunities in formal and informal learning.
