YourEHU Secondary and Further Education – Applicant Visit Day

You will receive an invitation to an Applicant Visit Day by email and post.

These events are your chance to spend some time on-campus before you have to make your firm and insurance choices in May, and for you to find out what it would be like to study and socialise here.

What is it?

You will be able to:

    • take part in a subject taster session, or have a one-to-one session with academic staff from your department – your opportunity to get a feel for what studying your course would be like
    • chat to current students from your department – the perfect way to find out what student life is like here!
    • view our range of on-campus accommodation and see what life in halls of residence looks like
    • find out about accommodation, finance, student support, study abroad options and career advice
    • go on a campus tour and find out where you will be studying, as well as where you will be socialising!

Even if you have previously attended an open day, we strongly recommend attending an applicant visit day as it provides a very different experience.

Education Courses

Applicants to the following courses can attend this session:

  • BA (Hons) Education
  • BA (Hons) Education and English
  • BA (Hons) Education and History
  • BA (Hons) Education and Religion
  • BA (Hons) Education and Sociology

This taster session will give you the opportunity to explore the discipline of Education Studies. At the end, you will have a clear understanding of how seminar sessions work on this course, the type of topics that we study, and the approaches that we take.

The class will explore themes around what sort of education should we provide for our citizens. Engaging in dialogue together, we will begin to investigate this question by posing and answering a series of apparently smaller questions that will help us to achieve clarity about some of the main concepts with which we are dealing.

You will also have the opportunity to talk through the shape and content of the full degree course, and to answer any questions that you might have about assessments and future career opportunities.
