2017 Open Days prove a big hit

The 2017 University Open Days took place on Friday 16th and Saturday 17th June, as well as Saturday 9th September.  As usual members of the Dental School were out in force to provide prospective students with all the information they need ahead of applying to study dentistry.  The bite-sized videos and augmented reality app Aurasma proved popular once again and we’ve seen a lot of visitors to our YouTube Channel.  The whole three days proved to be a huge success as emphasised by extracts of the feedback obtained below, and a huge thank you goes to the Open Day team for all their incredibly hard work.
