With a week to go before our Open Campus Day, you might be wondering how best to prepare to get the most out of your time with us. Our doors will open at 11am, inviting you to see the very best of what Harper Adams has to offer and ask any questions you may have about courses, facilities, and finance.
First, you'll need to register. You'll be able to do this with one of our team members who will provide you with an itinerary, map and HAU bag to keep all your course and club related materials within. Inside the bag you'll find a very useful Harper pen to keep note of contact names and numbers along with some snacks! You will also be able to have a refreshing tea or coffee to start your day with us off on the right track.
From here, we would invite you attend the welcome talk, led by Outreach Manager Kimberley Chadwick, which gives an overall look at Harper Adams as a university, from its success as Modern University to student satisfaction and job prospects at the end of a degree with us. From then, we have a masterclass lecture with Dr John Reade, and, following this, our Student's Union will talk on the clubs and societies they host and how you can get involved.
After this is the perfect time for lunch! Graze is our on campus cafe providing hot food, snacks and drinks throughout the day. Based in Faccenda, it is the perfect chance to see where the Student's Union is based along with our sporting facilities. If you fancy a lighter bite, there is our Kaldi cafe, located in the library, or Costa, based in the Agri-Epi Centre on the south side of campus.
At 1:30pm, our exhibition course and support services stands will open in Queen Mother Hall. Here, staff will be available to talk about degrees that matter and how you can achieve your goals. Along with this you can discover our support services that can help with finance, housing and wellbeing. Further, you can go on one of our campus tours, led by current students who can tell you all about life at Harper both academically and socially. You can also visit our labs, library and dairy unit to see the facilities that help our students apply theory to practise and make their time at university successful.
We hope this helps you plan ahead for our Open Campus Day and we look forward to seeing you all there. If you have yet to register for the event, you can do so here.
