It is an obvious step for many people to head to university once they are all done with their high school studies. However, while some find it really hard to decide which course to study, many are stuck on the question – where to study?
There are a number of factors that can affect your decision. For instance, which universities accepted your application? Which universities offer the course you are looking for or even which university has the best campus? All of these questions circle back to one main question – What do you actually demand from your university?
Online research and contacting some of the alumni might give you succinct insights about your prospect university. However, standing at a point where you are choosing your career path, moving forward with succinct knowledge will not suffice. You need comprehensive details about what your future university has to offer, does it tick all your checkboxes and ultimately how does it fare when compared to other institutions. In this digital world, going conventional sometimes is the key forward, and by this we mean – attending university open days!
We have listed some important reasons below to bring the idea of attending open days to your consideration-
You might meet your potential lecturers
We decide to pursue a course because we believe it has the potential to transform our lives at a later stage. However, it is imperative for us to understand what our course basically entails. Different universities include different modules for a particular course, and it might baffle you to find some modules missing from your course.
You can get better clarity of what your course is going to entail by having a word with the person who is going to deliver it. By meeting them, you will not just get to know what they are going to teach, however, can also judge their approach towards teaching and whether it resonates with your expectations.
Opportunity to check campus facilities
University facilities are something that not many people are fussed about, however, we cannot undermine the importance of a good library, a great gym and a feature-loaded campus. You will get abundant information about the campus facilities online, however verifying the credibility of information is important to save yourself from the desolation, when you actually arrive at the campus and find important bits missing.
Moreover, you can learn about the societies and the people involved all in one visit.
