An experience day at Wrexham Glyndŵr University is offering the chance to sample student life next week. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Prospective students interested in pursuing a university degree can book in on a range of exciting events throughout the day. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

The event helps them get a taste of what it’s like to be a student at the University, to meet staff and current students – and find out more about the course they intend to follow. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Held on Friday, June 8 with a wide range of events at the University’s Plas Coch campus, the day promises something for everyone. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Among sessions you can take part in are a sustainable egg drop challenge – where you use sustainable materials to protect an egg dropped from a great height; a drone challenge, where you’ll get to fly a drone after hearing more about the science behind the technology; or a cyber challenge – where you can put your skills to the test and find out more about cybersecurity. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Fans of Forensic Science can join in with an Alice in Wonderland murder mystery, analysing evidence to solve a crime; creatives can participate in a specially-designed social media workshop designed to get the best out of their online presence; and the chance to see engineering in action with a miniature jet engine. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

There’s a chance to hear from experts in a criminology taster session which looks at crime and how to prevent it – or a chance to find out where a career in youth and community work can take you. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Andy Cairns, Glyndŵr’s Events, Experience and CRM Officer said: ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Whatever you are thinking about doing at university, there is something to interest you. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“Our experience days not only offer you fun activities to take part in – but also the chance to talk to our academics and get their expert opinions, our students to hear more about campus life – and our support staff, who can give you advice on finances, learning support and much more. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

“If you are thinking of starting this September, our team can work with you to help – it’s not too late to apply and we’ll make sure you get all the help you need with your application.” ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​

Scheduled activities are taking place throughout the day. To see the full, exciting programme, book your place or find out more visit: wgu.ac.uk/xpdays ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
