Hundreds expected for inaugural Open Week

11 April 2013

Story text
THE inaugural Glyndwr University Open Week will welcome hundreds of would-be students from across the country.

The Wrexham and Northop campuses play host to a series of events, workshops and taster sessions from Monday to Friday (April 15-19).

Glyndwr's recruitment team will be on hand to offer help and support, as well information on courses available.

They include animal studies, art and design, criminal justice, business, computing, sports science and health and social care.

Subject to validation, among the new BSc degrees beginning in September are app design, entrepreneurship, wildlife and plant biology, and environmental and public health.

Sarah Lou-Gaffney, Widening Access Coordinator, said: "The event has been tailored to target those people who have not yet applied for 2013 entry, to emphasise that it is not too late and that we have all the information and support they need to decide which course, how to apply and how much it will cost.

"Anyone can come along, and can even sign up then and there."

Sarah added: "The mornings are subject based, with talks and workshops from our academics to get a real flavour of what they would be studying.

"We will also have industries present to talk about the roles available in their areas and the progression route from their present situation, through uni, and into employment.

"After lunch we will be concentrating on the support side of being a student – finance, admissions, careers, disability and study skills support and help with personal statements.

"e will also be promoting our new Kick Start years – four-year integrated degrees for those who do not have the entry requirements to get onto a three-year degree course, and our two-year degrees for those who would prefer to condense their degree into a smaller time frame."

Events will take place between 10am and 2.30pm each day.

Schools and colleges will need to book, and assistance with travel costs is available.
