Post-Application Open Days
Part of my role on the School's Admissions and Recruitment Committee involves organising, and running, our Post-Application Open Days for prospective students. These usually take place in February-May each year, and include talks on the Maths and Statistics curriculum at Newcastle, student finance, careers, accommodation and the city. Applicants and their guests also attend mini lectures, a question-and-answer session hosted by staff and students, and take part in campus tours, accommodation tours and a guided bus tour of the city. In 2013 the University recognised our open days as examples of "exemplary practice".
Current undergraduate students are heavily involved in the running of these open days - if you're currently a maths and stats student at Newcastle and would like to join in the fun, contact me!
