The University is encouraging potential students and interested members of the community to come along to the festival-themed event, which will give them the chance to immerse themselves in university life and discover all the amazing opportunities available to study at UWS.

Guests will have the opportunity to discover the future of learning at UWS Lanarkshire, Scotland’s brand new ultra-modern university campus as the flexible learning and teaching spaces will be on view to prospective students, showcasing some of the most modern university facilities in the UK.

The open day will include a programme of engaging talks, presentations and live demos by inspiring academics from a range of UWS’ schools.

There will also be action packed subject immersion zones and a student life zone with academics and current students on-hand to provide information and answer questions.

On the day, guests can also learn about the full range of fantastic practical placement and study abroad opportunities, as well as the various funding options and student support available.

Prospective students can enjoy spending time on the campus which is one of the UK’s greenest educational environments, powered by 100% renewable energy, and become familiar with the facilities including the state-of-the-art gym, health and fitness suite.

Dedicated social media stations will also be in place to give guests the chance to capture and share their UWS open day experience with fun photo opportunities.
