What to expect from an open day at Wrexham Glyndwr University
Open days are a great opportunity for you to visit our campuses and get a taste of what it’s like to be a student here at Wrexham Glyndwr University.
Our staff and student ambassadors will be on hand to guide you throughout your day. Find out more about your chosen course by chatting with your future lecturers or discover student life by spending time with our current students - there’s always a friendly face to be found at WGU.
To give you an idea of what to expect before you arrive, we have planned out your visit from start to finish. Read our guide to make the most out of a WGU open day:
Once you arrive on campus and enter via the main entrance, you will be greeted by friendly staff members who will help you sign in, just so we know who you are.
You will then be directed to our welcome desk where you will be informed on any talks occurring throughout the day. Feel free to ask about any subject specific events here, the times these take place can vary between each open day so it’s always good to check.
If you are wanting to visit our Northop campus, where our Animal Science degrees are taught, then we have a free minibus you can hop on which leaves at 11am. You’ll have plenty of time to explore, as you will be able to return at 1:30 pm on the same bus.
Our Regent Street bus, which will take you to our School of Creative Arts, runs every 30 minutes or so. Ask for details on the bus timetable at the welcome desk on the day of your visit.
On our main campus, now is a great opportunity to listen to a welcome talk from our Vice Chancellor.
You can even have a coffee and a chat with our VC and find out exactly what WGU has to offer you as a student.
Have a campus tour to get a feel of the university and see where you will be studying.
This will give you the chance to see some of the progress we have made in our facilities - and there are even more to come.
Starting at the main entrance, you’ll visit our classrooms and labs which we have recently invested in. You’ll see our new social spaces like the B hive, where you can relax or complete group projects in a dynamic environment.
Our new labs, study rooms and social spaces are part of our Campus 2025 project. We are investing £80 million into our students’ future by enhancing all of our campuses to ensure they have the best facilities and learning environment.
