Prospective students wanting to find out more about studying for a degree in Dagenham are invited to attend a virtual open day.

CU London, part of the Coventry University Group, is set to host a virtual open day for prospective students on Saturday 13 June from 11am to 2pm.

The virtual open day will give people an insight into studying at CU London, based at the former Dagenham Civic Centre, from the safety of their homes.

Potential students will be given an introduction to life as a student at CU London by Academic Heads Salih Kirmizi and Friday Adejo before being able to listen to presentations on topics including admissions, student accommodation and student support.

There will also be course videos as well as live chats with tutors, giving those attending the chance to ask any questions they have.

Those attending will also be able to find out details about two new courses launching in September 2020 - BA (Hons) Sport and Leisure Management and BSc (Hons) Applied Psychology.

Martin Bell, Regional Recruitment Manager at CU London which also has a site in Greenwich, said that the online event is designed to mirror open days held on site as closely as possible, while ensuring that social distancing measures are adhered to.

Since the lockdown began we have had to adopt completely new ways of working, and this has extended to our open days.

Our virtual open day will provide prospective students with all of the information they would receive at an event held on campus, but from the safety of their homes.

Attendees will arrive into a virtual reception area where they will be directed to the different talks and presentations that are taking place.

They will be able to find out what it is like to study in East London and details on all of the courses we offer.

Staff and tutors will be on-hand to answer any questions, and there will also be virtual lounges where they can network with other prospective students.

We are making the event as interactive as possible to ensure potential students are able to get all the information they need to make informed decisions about their next steps, despite the current lockdown.
