(Tacky title I know)
The time has come when you have said goodbye to your UCAS application and are hopefully finding some university offers coming in… the most important offer you may have received is from THE UNIVERSITY OF LEICESTER.
If you have received an offer to study here you will most likely have also received an invite to come along to one of our Visit Days. I don’t think I went to mine as I knew Leicester was my favourite university and my deferred entry made me complacent . However, I do not advocate this type of behaviour and I strongly recommend you coming to see Leicester and your chosen subject’s department *cough* History *cough*.
This is because this morning a small group of History students gathered in a tiny room and discussed our plans for the Visit Day as we will be there at the department’s lectures and Q & A to answer any of your questions, tell you about our experiences in Leicester and basically show you how we have really enjoyed the time here. This is even more poignant for third year students, like myself, who are already dreading the loss of leaving.
The Vist Days will allow you to come and see what it will be like when you are a student here as all of us want to give you an honest insight into our experiences. You’ll not only get to speak to current students and lecturers, but also have a small taster lecture, which will give you a hint of how university is taught differently from school and how it can be really interesting. Not only will you get a taster lecture, but you’ll here about potential topics you could study and future plans for the University of Leicester and the History department.
By coming to our Visit Days you will be able to get an honest view of Leicester, which will help you make the right choice about whether you want to come here. I know this time can be really difficult and a bit stressful, but the Visit Days are meant to help you clear the haze and confusion and help you make the right decision.
My advice if you are coming is if you have any questions don’t be scared about asking them- everyone in the room probably has the same questions. The students who are there to answer your questions will be more than willing to try and answer anything as not that long ago we probably had the same questions.
I hope to see you there.
