WELCOME FROM PROFESSOR JOY CARTER DL, VICE-CHANCELLOR “I am delighted to welcome you to our Open Day. I know that they are vital in helping you determine your future choice so today is really about giving you the opportunity to get a feel for student life at the University of Winchester and find out what it’s like to study and live in this wonderful city. The University is modern and dynamic, with a long history of excellence in higher education. We have much to be proud of, particularly our innovative teaching, our vibrant campus life and our first-class facilities. We are a values-driven institution where the emphasis is on our students as individuals - you are supported and empowered to reach your potential, both academically and personally. I hope this is reflected, even in your short time today, as you explore our campus and speak to those that already study here. I would urge you to see as much of the University as you can – this can be done through tours of the campus and the accommodation. You have the chance to find out a lot more about the subject you are interested in and talk to those who might be teaching you. There is also a range of useful information including housing, finance, how to apply and student support. With so much going on, please do not hesitate to ask our friendly staff and students any questions you might have – we’re here to help. Finally, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit and I wish you an enjoyable and inspiring day.”
