PAIS open days
Last week I was working at the PAIS open day, which was really exciting — I loved meeting you all and answering your questions!
For those of you who haven’t attended yet; or are deciding whether to:
I definitely suggest you attend! This is a typical day for open day students:
Open Day Schedule
2.00-3.00pm Welcome to your degree programme in the Department of Politics and International Studies in S0.21 (Social Studies Building)
3.00-3.50pm PAIS Taster Seminars – experience a seminar on a topic in Politics and International Studies led by a PAIS faculty member
3.50-4.30pm Tour of the campus for prospective students led by current Politics and International Studies department undergraduates
3.50-4.30pm Q&A for Family and Friends of Prospective Students – Fees & Funding, Accommodation, Student Welfare
4.30pm Light refreshments and an opportunity to ask further questions in an informal atmosphere in the PAIS Student Common Room.
The taster seminars are particularly helpful (even for me as a student I found it so interesting!), as they give you a chance to experience what the academic side of university is like. They will help you decide whether you think PAIS is right for you or not — for me; the seminars are so relevant and useful, and a great addition to the weekly lectures.
If you haven’t already seen the campus, the tours are worth doing — you can tell your tour guide any particular places you want to see and they will most certainly do their best.
Please don’t hesitate to ask any questions at all – whether it is deciding which accommodation to choose, or worries about module choices, or deciding whether the year abroad opportunities cater to your interests; the staff and students will be happy to help where they can!
I will be working at the next open day; so if you see me do say hi!
I look forward to meeting you all, and good luck with your exams, I really hope you achieve your offers; PAIS is a great place to be!
