Countdown begins for University's Open Day

The clock is ticking down to one of the University of Aberdeen's biggest events - the Open Day which will be held next month.

In less than one month's time, on Tuesday, August 24, the annual Open Day will allow prospective students the chance to get a flavour of the 620+ degree courses on offer at the University. The aim is to attract potential students interested in coming to study at the University in September 2005 although late applicants for 2004 entry are welcome to attend.

Preparations have been ongoing throughout the year and bookings for this year's event are soaring. It is anticipated that upwards of 4,000 people will descend on the King's College and Foresterhill campuses.

A packed programme of events has been planned to showcase the University and offer potential students the chance to experience student life. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet with staff and students, take a tour of the campus and participate in interactive sessions. The Medical School is offering a full programme at the Foresterhill campus. Prospective students are also invited to stay overnight in halls of residence and attend an exclusive party on Monday, 23 August.

Lisa Rattray, Marketing Officer and Open Day Co-ordinator, is looking forward to welcoming visitors to the campus and is delighted at this year's bookings which have exceeded expectations. She said: "Bookings are well up this year and I am looking forward to welcoming visitors from throughout the UK and across the globe to the University's campus. We've had registrations from Ireland, India, Cambridge, Finland and Nigeria, so the word has certainly spread."

The Open Day team is ready to take calls and bookings so people are being asked to register now by calling Freephone 0800 027 1495 or visiting the website at www.abdn.ac.uk/openday.
