Reading about university campuses online is totally different to experiencing them first-hand.

You have to be able to see yourself spending loads of time on that campus throughout the completion of your degree. If you’re weighing up two universities, the deciding factor could be that the vibe’s not right at one of them.

It’s important to feel like the staff at your prospective uni care about your academic future and are there to guide you down that pathway, and university open days are a great way to get a feel of the different campuses and see how welcoming and helpful the staff are.
