Nursing, Midwifery & Allied Health Open Day FAQs

We appreciate there’s a lot to cover at our open days, so here are a few frequently asked questions to help you plan. If there’s something you want to know that we’ve not covered here, give us a call on 0330 123 2023 or email us.

What COVID-19 measures have you put in place to ensure my safety?

The safety of our visitors, students and staff is our absolute priority. We’ll be sticking to Government guidance, as well as our own health and safety processes – we ask that you wear a mask when on campus (unless exempt). Please follow the guidance given to you by our staff to keep you safe.

Toilets and hand sanitiser will be available, our toilets are cleaned regularly during the day and we have sanitiser stations throughout our campus.

Please do not visit us if you have any Covid symptoms, or you or a member of your household is self-isolating.

If you have any questions or concerns before your visit, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

What should I expect?

We’ve got course talks, campus tours, a chance to try out our amazing skills labs longer with advice from our admissions, accommodation and student support teams.  There’s a lot going on, so we recommend making a list of priorities and having a think about what you may want to ask, for example, what do you need to know about studying here, the application process or how student finance works?

During your visit, try and get acquainted with some of the places you could be spending your time in over the next few years. If you’ve got free time afterwards, we’d suggest taking a wander around town to get a proper feel for our local community.

If you want to ask us something before you arrive please call 0330 123 20 23 or email us.

Can I bring someone with me?

Plenty of people attend open days on their own but bringing someone else along for support is a great idea!

Changing a booking

If you’ve booked but can no longer make it, you can cancel or amend your booking using the relevant booking form above and selecting the ‘I have a booking’ tab. You’ll need your booking reference in order to change your booking, which can be found on your event confirmation email. If you have any problems with this, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll be happy to assist.

What should I do when I arrive?

When you register for our open day online, you will be sent a unique barcode by email. You’ll need to present this (either electronically or printed) at the Welcome Desk when you arrive. There will be lots of staff and students on campus directing you where to go, so once we’ve signed you in for the event, we’ll let you know what to do next.

Travel and parking information
