What to Expect From a Virtual Open Day

What to expect from a Virtual Open Day

 

It might not be possible for us to welcome you to our vibrant, city-centre campus at the moment, but that doesn't mean you can't get a feel for the place from wherever you are in the world.

We are pleased to be launching our exciting new virtual event platform this summer, where we'll run a series of Virtual Open Days to give you a taste of what you can expect when you decide to study with us.

What are the Virtual Bitesize Events?

We know that there are lots of things you want to know before you apply to university but ploughing through all of that information can be overwhelming.

We also know your time is precious and you don’t always have hours at a time to spend online.

So, we have taken our Virtual Open Day and broken it down into a series of bitesize events to help you learn all about Northumbria and what we have to offer you.

The events will cover:

  • Your Learning Experience: find out more about your subject area and course
  • Your Home: our city and accommodation
  • Your Community: the opportunities to meet people, make friends and gain skills outside of your degree
  • Your Future: how we will help equip you to go on to a successful career and what our graduates are doing now
  • Your Money: how to fund university
  • Our Advice: on applying for the course you are interested in

What can I expect from these events?

Each event will give you the chance to immerse yourself in our NU World and ask the questions you need answers to, as well as exploring Northumbria through films, 360 tours, vlogs, presentations and quizzes.  

There will be live panels where you can connect with students and staff, live chats where you can talk directly to an adviser and a selection of videos relevant to your area of interest.

How do I register?

You can sign up for your event by hitting the ‘register for a virtual event’ button on the open day page. You may have also received an email from us which will include a link to register.

I am interested in more than one subject area, can I book onto more than one event?

Yes, you can register for as many events as you like! If you’re interested in more than one subject area this is a great chance to find out about the different courses and speak to our staff and students to see which course is for you.

How do I access an event?

Closer to the event you will be sent a link to access the event via email.

Do I need to be on a PC/laptop to access it or can I use my mobile?

You can access the event via your mobile, however, to get the best from the event we would recommend using a PC or laptop. To fully participate in the event and view all live elements, we recommend you use Google Chrome. Other browsers which will enable you to use NU World, but potentially not access all parts of the event, are Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari and Mozilla Firefox.

I am struggling to join the live sessions. How do I join?

Cameras and microphones are not required for the live sessions. Click 'X'on the right hand side of the live broadcast screen to close the message and join the live event.

Why is it taking a while for content to load?

We have some great content to share with you but some of the files are large. Bear with us – at busy times when there is a lot of people on the platform it may take a little while longer to load, but it will be worth the (very short) wait.

Are you planning on holding on-campus events?

Whilst we are still uncertain of what will happen, we are constantly monitoring the situation. If we are unable to hold the events on campus, we will continue to hold them virtually.
