The University of Ulster’s Magee campus is inviting prospective students to attend its annual Open Day which takes place next week.
The event, hosted on Saturday 15 September, will allow visitors from across Northern Ireland, the border counties and further afield to experience the first-class courses and learning facilities on offer at Magee.
It will be the first time Open Day has been hosted over a weekend, giving parents and prospective part-time or postgraduate students the opportunity to attend alongside the traditional sixth -form audience.
Attendees will be able to meet with staff and existing students, get detailed information about full and part-time courses, tour Magee’s high-quality facilities and speak to advisors about finance and student support.
As well as sixth-form students and recent school leavers, Magee Open Day is aimed at mature students, those coming to university with Access Diplomas and anyone thinking of undertaking part-time study.
Davina Roche, Career Consultant at Magee, said: “This is an important time for anyone considering studying at university. Many students are now opting to remain in Northern Ireland, with one important factor being affordability. Magee gives local people the opportunity to gain an excellent qualification from a leading institution, right on their doorstep.
“The University’s Nursing, Irish Language and Literature, Dance and Drama courses are unique to the Magee campus.Other teaching strengths include the Creative Arts, Business, Computing, Social Sciences, Law, Psychology and Peace and Conflict Studies.”
She added: “Traditionally Open Days were only available to schools but this year as the event is being held on a Saturday, anyone who is interested in studying at Magee can come along. It is also a great opportunity for parents to attend.”
Next week also marks the launch of the new Magee campus mini guide – a dedicated publication which outlines all the course options available at Magee.
“The new guide offers prospective students a flavour of what it is like to study at the University of Ulster’s Magee campus and outlines the full range of courses on offer,” explains Davina.
“Copies will be distributed throughout the Open Day event or can be requested by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.”
The University of Ulster’s Magee campus Open Day will take place on Saturday 15 September, from 10am -1.30pm.
