Open Day Series

About

Teachers don’t approach prospective students to showcase their university. Instead, universities organise Open Days to allow students to experience it first hand, as opposed to simply hearing or reading about it. We aim to apply this same approach with students and the work place, reversing the traditional Industry Night model to maximise student experience and engagement.

Open Day Series 2020 was unfortunately affected by the lockdowns caused by the global pandemic and out of the 26 firms organised, only 3 were able to go ahead. This year we worked with engineering companies in addition to architecture, construction, landscape architecture, urban planning and property to broaden our student reach.
