What you need to know | 1 Who will be here? | 2 Talks and tours | 4 Subject talks | 6 Maps | 7 Welcome to the Scarborough Campus of the University of Hull Our Open Day is designed to help you to make the right choices for the future, and especially to discover whether this university is right for you. Please use your visit to speak to our academic and support staff and to get answers to all your questions. We want you to go away with a better understanding of the degree courses that we offer, the ethos of the University and the special campus environment that we have created in Scarborough. On hand throughout the day will be a group of current undergraduates who have volunteered to be Student Ambassadors. You will be able to chat to them about their own experiences and ďŹ nd out about life as a University of Hull student at the Scarborough Campus. We pride ourselves on putting students at the heart of everything that we do, and on providing all the intellectual stimulation and practical support that you need to realise your academic potential. We aim to give you a personalised university experience, and you will be able to enjoy a taste of this at the Open Day.
Make yourself at home. There is no need to book in advance for most of our talks or tours: just turn up.
I look forward to welcoming you to the campus on Saturday. Dr Craig Gaskell Principal of the Scarborough Campus
