Sadly we cannot provide overnight accommodation for the event, which we appreciate will make it difficult for those from further away to come. We are investigating recording some of the talks so that they can be viewed more widely at a later date.
Lunch will not be provided, and the café in the building is shut at the weekend, but there will be an area indoors to eat a packed lunch if you bring your own food, and we hope there will be current students around to talk to. There are a few local eateries, but the time allocated for lunch may make it difficult to get very far from the building and return in time for the afternoon sessions.
We will need to take and store some personal details to handle your booking. Because we plan to have degree-specific sessions in the afternoon it would be useful to know, to give an idea of numbers for room allocation, which degree you’re most interested in. So we need your permission to use some specific information for the event. Please fill out the registration form if you wish to attend.
We also ask you for a few further details, which do not directly affect the running of this event but are part of a cooperative endeavour to help develop a wider picture of access to Higher Education. You may well be asked for the same information from a number of universities for the same purpose. See http://heat.ac.uk/
It makes no difference in applying for the Open Day whether you give this further data and your permission, and you won’t benefit personally by letting the data be used. However, future generations across the whole of UK education may benefit from our ability to track the usefulness of various types of training and events from school right the way through to getting established in a career. So we’d be very grateful for your help.
