UOS - OHD 11th May General Schedule

Page 1

Saturday 11 May 2024, 09:30 – 16:00

Thank you for joining us for your Offer Holder Day. We hope that the day will give you a flavour of what life is like as an undergraduate student here at the University of Salford and that it answers any questions you might have. Please find below an overview of what’s happening on the day.

How does the day work?

During the day, all our courses will have one course session either in the morning or the afternoon. You’ll find your course session information on the further information webpage which gives you the run down on timings and the activities taking place for your course.

Alongside the course sessions, we are offering a variety of scheduled and drop-in activities, covering the range of student experience including campus tours, accommodation tours, student finance, parents and supporters Q&A sessions, disability and wellbeing, and more. We’ve listed all these activities for you below.

Choosing the right university and course is one of the most important decisions you will make. We’re here to help you with that decision and our number one recommendation is that you ask questions! Our staff and students are happy to help, and we’d especially recommend chatting with our students about their experiences here at Salford.

We can’t wait to meet you!
