Our Open Day planning team is keen to hear from colleagues willing to work at our final Open Day this year which takes place on Saturday 14 September. Open Days are critical in helping prospective applicants (and those who influence their choice, especially parents) to decide where they might prefer to study. Our visitors often comment on the warmth of the welcome at Bath from staff and students and the helpful advice they receive. 82% of those who answered our Open Day survey last year said they were more likely to apply to study with us after attending.
Open Days are all about talking to prospective students, answering their questions and demonstrating the excellence of our teaching, our support and our campus facilities. It is always great to see and hear for myself the enthusiasm of so many applicants to win a place at Bath.
If you can offer to help or would like to find out more, please contact Lucy Perry, firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 5985.
To assist the staff with children, the Nursery is offering free childcare for those taking part. This will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
All car parking is free. For those staff arriving later in the day who may struggle to find space to park, Security Services have allocated K car park for your use which is located to the rear of Brendon Court. It will not be staffed and there is no need to use a special pass.
Many thanks in advance,
Professor Bernie Morley,
Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost
