While keeping close to home to stay safe is important, if you’re considering attending university it’s important to attend an open day. This year, universities across Scotland will be holding virtual open days so you can choose the right fit for you.
You might be excited to get out of your local town or city after months in lockdown, but in order to keep existing and prospective students safe universities throughout the country are holding virtual open days.
We’re sad that we can’t visit schools as normal this year, but we won’t let that stop us showing you everything we have to offer! Join one of our weekly Virtual Visits!
The next #VirtualVisit is Thursday at 2pm. Register at https://t.co/Xkb5N1DkhS pic.twitter.com/ilN2torv6n
