Questions to Ask at Open Day

Make sure you leave Open Day with all the information you need to make the right university choice.

Questions for lecturers

Our lecturers are experts in their field and know their subject inside out. They’ll be at the course sessions (grab them at the end if you’re shy about asking a question during the talk) and they will be on hand for a chat in their Academic School Basecamp room.

  • What jobs have graduates of this course gone on to do?
  • What are the facilities like for this course?
  • How many teaching hours are there per week?
  • Does the course offer work placements?

Questions for current Abertay students

Our student helpers will be all over the campus during Open Days. You’ll also find them in the Academic School Basecamp rooms. They wear Abertay T-shirts so are easy to spot. As well as showing you where to go for your next activity, make the most of them by asking all the questions about what life is really like as an Abertay student.

  • What do you like best about Abertay?
  • How do you get on with your tutors?
  • Is it easy to get hold of tutors outside of class?
  • What’s it like living in halls?
  • What’s it like living in Dundee?

Questions for accommodation staff

Our accommodation staff will be running tours of our halls of residence and giving talks on accommodation. It’s really important you listen to an accommodation talk before you go on a tour. You’ll find out much more about the accommodation options, locations and prices during a talk than you will on the tour. At a talk, you’ll also be able to pick up an accommodation brochure and ask questions.

  • What’s the difference between the various halls?
  • Am I guaranteed a room?
  • When do I have to apply for accommodation?
