You will need to book your place online. An open day guide will then be sent to you a few weeks before the event. You will also be sent a link to booking any veterinary activities that require tickets. There is no parking on campus so the best options are to park in the city centre or use public transport.
The School of Veterinary Science in Liverpool is based on the main university campus and the Leahurst campus in Cheshire. This site is where you will spend your 4th and 5th year studying as it contains veterinary practices, working farms and large referral hospitals. However, the open day will take place at Liverpool’s main campus. You will be able to visit the veterinary department and talk to current students about their experiences. A variety of activities will also take place on the day and details of these will be published in the open day guide.
Liverpool will also host general talks and presentations which will display everything that the university has to offer the people that study there. Going on a campus tour will allow you to see all of the facilities that the presentations will talk about – including the impressive libraries and sports centre. If you want to see more of Liverpool itself, make sure you go on a guided coach tour of the city and see those well-known landmarks for yourself.
Tours of the student accommodation will be available. You can choose to visit the on campus Vine Court or off campus Carnatic and Greenbank Halls. A coach will take you to the off campus halls. You will need to collect tickets for Vine Court on the day. This residence would be a good one to look at as it was the 2012 winner of the Best Student Accommodation award at the Your Move Property Awards.
Register online for a guided campus tour. These are run throughout the year and last for an hour and a half. Although you won’t be able to visit the veterinary school, you can look at all of Liverpool’s other facilities as well as the Vine Court accommodation.
The university campus is also open to the public so you can make an independent visit at any time. They even offer a downloadable self-guided campus tour podcast so you won’t miss out on any important information.
