People interested in finding out more about studying at university are warmly welcomed to Northumbria University’s latest Open Day, which is being held tomorrow (Saturday 24 September).

The University opens its doors to prospective students each summer and autumn to tell them more about the range of courses it offers, as well as showcasing its campus and facilities.

People attending open days can meet with academics and current students to learn more about the range of subjects offered by the University. These range from arts, accounting, architecture, business and computing through to law, design, nursing, sport, psychology and engineering.

They also have the opportunity to view facilities which have led to Northumbria being ranked as one of the top 20 universities in the country for providing an outstanding student experience.

These include the 24/7 library, which is ranked joint first in the UK; the £30m Sport Central which features an arena, swimming pool, gym and fitness studios; state-of-the-art student accommodation ranging from private flats with ensuite bathrooms to shared catered halls; and the University’s vast range of social spaces including cafes, shops and the award-winning Students’ Union.

Staff are also on hand to offer advice and guidance on finance and funding, as well as any additional support students may require to support their personal needs and abilities.

To attend tomorrow’s Open Day, simply register at or come along to Sport Central on Northumberland Road from 9am.

If you are unable to attend this weekend, but are interested in finding out more, Open Days are also scheduled to be held on Saturday 29 October and Saturday 26 November.
