University hosts Science Applicant Day

University hosts Science Applicant Day

Would be science students from across Britain and beyond are visiting the University of Aberdeen today (February 28, 2007).

The institution is expecting around 600 visitors – including applicants and parents from Europe (Poland, Germany, Italy, and a student from Azerbaijan), who will be touring the campuses at Old Aberdeen for this year's Bachelor of Sciences Applicant Day.

Academics from a wide range of areas will be on hand to greet guests and provide advice on the huge variety of BSc courses offered at Aberdeen. A full programme has been lined up for the day, including morning talks and afternoon departmental sessions.

Departments offering information packed sessions to potential students include Biological Sciences; Chemistry; Computing Science; Geography and Environment; Geology and Petroleum Geology; Health Sciences; Marine and Coastal Resource Management; Mathematical Sciences; Medical Sciences; Physics and Psychology.

The group of incoming applicants will be able to tour the Hub, a newly-refurbished dining, leisure and social facility catering mainly for the needs of students, while also welcoming staff and local community.  Guests will also receive a 20% voucher to enjoy a meal at Hub Grub as part of their visit. 

Chemistry will also offer a tour of the department, visits to teaching and research labs, and staff will provide an informative lecture about the course structures and career opportunities as chemists.

Elsewhere key advice will be offered on careers in finance, student support services and student life.

Molly Prather, Assistant College Registrar (Student Recruitment) for the University's College of Physical Sciences, has been involved in organising the event. She said: "The BSc Applicant Day is a great opportunity for people who have been offered a place at the University of Aberdeen to see for themselves the high quality teaching facilities we have to offer here at the institution.

"Various sessions have been arranged to ensure applicants have the essential information in preparing themselves for university life. Not only are we able to showcase the campus, and our academic offerings, we are also investing in preparing students for university life. 

"We hope that, combined with the great quality of life the North-east enjoys, we will be able to persuade them to confirm their place at Aberdeen."
