Top 5 Reasons to attend an Open Day


Although the deadline for making your choices for university may seem like miles away, you’d be surprised how quick it can sneak up on you. When looking at potential options, it can be easy to be drawn to the first one that grabs your attention if you feel under pressure.

Don’t risk missing out on the course that’s right for you!



At Echo Factory we like to keep things personal. From our teaching style to our Open Days, we believe one-to-one attention and a tailored approach ensures you get the most from your experience. It’s also way more fun!


Find out why you should join us on 17th November!

1. See the Facilities

By going to an open day, you get to walk around the college and be immersed in its atmosphere. You get to see the buildings, lecture rooms, library, restaurants, bars, and amenities.

2. Get a feel for the course

The same subject can be taught in a variety of ways depending on where you choose to study. Some courses might be more academic whereas some may be more practical. Some may rely on exams whilst others focus on coursework or projects. It’s important to pick a course that helps you pursue your passion and suits your way of learning, and attending an Open Day means you’ll get a clear insight into whether a course is the right fit for you.

3. Meet the Lecturers & Ask Questions

Open Days are a great chance to meet lecturers and find out more information about the course you may want to do. It also gives you the chance to ask any questions you may have from course modules, types of assignments or student support. That makes Open Days a prime opportunity to delve into the detail of what a course offers and be confident that you’re fully informed before you apply.

4. Get to know other students

The great thing about open days is you’ll not only get to meet the staff, but also the current students too! Seeing the sort of people around gives you a feel for how you’d fit in with other students and you may find you get along well enough to end up as university buddies before you’ve even enroll.

5. Explore the local area

Where you choose to study will be your home for at least 3 years so it’s important to get to know the local area. We love Leicester and think you will too so attending an Open Day will mean you can explore the city and see why you should choose Leicester!
