Here are some answers to the most asked questions we get about the offer holder day:
Q: I have already attended an open day – should I go to an offer holder day too?
A: Yes, applicant days are definitely worth attending – you’ll get hands-on with our interactive taster sessions, meet the people who’ll be teaching you and make friends with other students. This is your chance to find out what it would really be like to study your course.
Q: Will I get to have a look around the university accommodation?
A: As well as our on-campus accommodation, you’ll also have the opportunity to view our new Pittville Student Village. Pittville features over 600 en-suite bedrooms, studio flats, a student bar, gym, refectory, laundry room and faith space.
Q: Can I bring guests?
A: Yes, you can bring two guests along and there is a Q&A session specifically for them. If you would like to bring more guests please let us know in advance.
Q: Is lunch provided?
A: Refreshments are provided on arrival and you will receive a complimentary lunch. If your guests have any dietary requirements or additional support needs we might need to know about on the day, please let us know in advance.
Q: What time does the offer holder day start and finish? Where shall I report to on arrival?
A: 9.30 – 16.00. Please register at Park campus reception (there will be student ambassadors on hand across the campus to point you in the right direction).
Q: Do I need to bring anything with me?
A: You don’t need to bring anything, other than enthusiasm and a willingness to get involved.
Q: What parking arrangements are available? How do I reach the campus by bus or train?
A: Please find enclosed a parking permit, which you can use for parking on campus; remember to bring it with you on the day. The closest train station is Cheltenham Spa, which is a 20 minute walk from our Park campus, or you can catch the 94U bus from the town centre, which stops right outside.
