Undergraduate open days at Queen Margaret University

By Press Office

Thursday 3rd Sept and Saturday 3rd October 2015. Campus tours, university application advice, course talks and an international song and dance performance are just some of the things on offer at Queen Margaret University’s up and coming open days.

The undergraduate open days, which will take place on Thursday 3rd September and Saturday 3rd October, will give visitors a chance to find out about a wide range of undergraduate courses. The event, which is suitable for individuals looking to start university in September 2016, will offer visitors the opportunity to meet academics and current students, view accommodation in QMU’s student village and find out about student life. A range of presentations will provide helpful tips for applying through the UCAS system and understanding student funding.

The University offers a niche range of undergraduate degree courses in the areas of Health Sciences; Business, Enterprise and Management; Media, Communication and Performing Arts; and Social Sciences. To help visitors get a better insight into these areas, academics will present subject talks on, for example, Performing Arts, Costume Design and Construction; Business & Management; Media, Film and PR; Nursing, Speech and Audiology, and Podiatry. Visitors will also be able to find out about new degree programmes which the University is offering including Public Sociology; Physical Activity, Health and Wellbeing; and Nutrition & Food Science.

Open Day visitors will have the opportunity to talk to academics on a face-to-face basis about courses, speak to student helpers and support staff, and take organised tours of the campus to view teaching, learning and clinical areas. Campus tours will also allow visitors to see the shared student flats on campus and University’s sports facilities.

The September 3rd event will also include a special guest performance from the Taiwanese Youth Ambassadors. The group will present a mix of drumming, singing and folk dance song from their show ‘Energetic New Taiwan’ which they will have performed at several venues during their cultural trip to the Scottish capital.

The open days will run from 11am – 4pm on Thursday 3rd September and Saturday 3rd October and the performance by the Taiwanese Youth Ambassadors will take place at 3.30pm on Thursday 3rd September.

(Registration is not compulsory. You are welcome to attend either of the days without registering but in order to speed up your arrival at the university it is best to register.)
