Nothing serves to help us come to a decision better than some good old-fashioned human intuition. When you attend an open day you’re sure to get a gut-feeling about the university. The vibe of the place may entice you into getting it onto your UCAS application, or something might not feel quite right for you. 

What to look for:

  • Is there a buzz about the place?
  • Would I prefer a campus or city university?
  • What are the staff and students like?
  • Does it all feel genuine?
