The campus was buzzing, lecture theatres were full and hundreds of meaningful conversations were had across all disciplines!

Thank you to everyone who gave up their time on Saturday 17th August to support this year’s Open Day. Over 135 staff and students from FoHS volunteered on the day (in addition to all the organising that took place in the lead up).

The Executive Dean, Simon Handley, sent his personal thanks saying “It was a great effort by everyone involved and a very successful event for the Faculty.”

There were over 8.000 registrations for the event and over 9,000 attended on the day. Theresa Touma, our Faculty Recruitment Manager, commented that “Initial feedback has been really positive with some great conversations about our new degrees and offerings for 2020. I saw many inspired students eager to apply which was really great. Most lectures were at capacity and our activities were consistently well attended throughout the day.  It was a great day and a great push for our 2020 student recruitment!”
