Humanities Open Days
The Humanities and Social Studies Board organises two Open Days each year, usually in February and March, for inter-departmental Joint Honours applicants. The programme for applicants includes an introductory talk by a member of staff, viewing the University video, visits to both departments in which the applicant wishes to study and a presentation on Student Life by the Students' Union. The parents' programme also includes viewing the University video, plus a talk by a senior member of staff and a one hour question and answer session, when the senior member of staff is joined by representatives from the Dean of Students' Office, the Library, the Careers Service and Residences and by students representatives, followed by tea.
