Now that you've visited a HE Fair, it’s time to start thinking about what to do next. From researching your options online or in the prospectus to visiting on an Open Day, there’s a number of things you can do to help you pick the right university for you.

Research Your Options

If you haven’t left a HE Fair with bags bursting with prospectuses and a head to match, then you haven’t done it right. With hundreds of higher education providers all under one roof, HE Fairs are the perfect opportunity to get as much information as possible about your options.

When you’re ready to start sifting through your collection, start by creating three piles: no, yes and maybe. There are lots of questions you can ask to narrow it down. Remember it’s not all about statistics, it’s about finding the right university for you. Consider such things as:

  • Does the university offer your course?
  • Does the course content cover everything you want to learn?
  • Are there opportunities for work experience?
  • Are there opportunities to study abroad?
  • What do graduates go on to do?
  • What do current and past students say?
  • What about the location – could you see yourself living there? 

Whilst the prospectus has lots of useful information, it’s also worth looking at each university’s website and getting in touch. If you have any questions about the University of Chester, feel free to contact us. Simply email enquiries@chester.ac.uk, and one of our friendly HE advisors will be in touch.

Once you’ve decided on your top picks, it’s time to plan your visits. All universities will offer visiting opportunities, from Open Days to campus tours.

Open Days are a fantastic opportunity to see first-hand what a university is really like as you attend subject sessions, meet current students and lecturers, view campus facilities and get all your questions answered. You can find details of university Open Days on their websites.

The University of Chester has Open Days on the following dates:

  • Saturday 13th October: Chester campuses
  • Saturday 20th October: Warrington Campus and University Centre Shrewsbury 
  • Saturday 27th October: Chester campuses
  • Wednesday 14th November: Chester campuses

You can view details and book your place on our website.

Don’t forget to plan in advance what you are going to see and do at each Open Day. Take a look at our blog ‘Make the Most of Your Open Day,’ for things to consider before your visit.
