How can you make the most of a Bath Spa University open day? Third year student Khadeeja shares her advice

Khadeeja Osman is a third year BSc Geography student and a student ambassador at Bath Spa University. Here are her top tips on how to get the most out of your open day visit.

I hope you’re looking forward to your open day! There’s a lot to think about so my first tip is to take some time to plan your day to ensure that you gain as much as possible from your experience. Take a look at the schedule and remember to attend your course talks, but remember, there are other events on offer too, such as finance or accommodation talks, so do check those out for to gain the full experience.

It’s a good idea to schedule time to explore your surroundings, including our on and off-campus accommodation, places to eat, transport facilities, as well as the beautiful city that is Bath. If this is your first time visiting, why not find time to visit Bath Abbey? There’s nothing quite like a walk around it, soaking up the special atmosphere and history.

I would also recommend grabbing a picnic and checking out the iconic Royal Crescent. This world-famous landmark is a row of 30 terraced houses arranged around a perfect lawn overlooking Royal Victoria Park. It’s a Grade I listed building and is among the greatest examples of Georgian architecture to be found in the United Kingdom. You could even stop for lunch at one of the many lovely cafes.

Last but not least, ask plenty of questions. Our staff members are all very friendly and approachable, and there will be plenty of student ambassadors around (we’re the ones in blue t-shirts!) who will be happy to answer any questions you have about being a student at Bath Spa University and life in Bath in general.

Most importantly, enjoy yourself!
