Studying at university is about more than just study
When you're choosing to study at a university, the courses on offer are the main deciding factor. But university life isn't all about what you're studying, it's also about the environment you're studying in and the people you're studying with. The AECC University College was the first chiropractic college in Europe when it first opened in 1965, today they offer courses in musculoskeletal health, chiropractic medicine and rehabilitation. The AECC Open Days are designed to introduce you not only to the available courses, but also to the student life you can expect on campus.
AECC University College is located in Bournemouth and the campus is just a short walk from Bournemouth's beaches. The campus is also about 30 miles from the Southampton city centre, and about 50miles from Portsmouth.
Arrival & Welcome It's recommended you arrive at the open day around 9:30am. This gives you time to get your bearings, figure out where you'll be going for your course talk, and find out where the other services are located. There will be some complimentary refreshments provided.
The official program starts off with the course talks. These give you a bit more information about the different courses on offer and how to apply for them. It's best if you already have in mind the course you're interested in, as there are individual talks for the courses rather than one talk on the entire AECC course program.
Campus Tours The campus tours will help familiarise yourself with AECC including its facilities and the different buildings where you'll be studying and socialising. It's also an opportunity to meet other prospective students as well as current students. The tours are led by Student Ambassadors, these are students that are already studying at AECC, so they'll be able to any questions you have about campus life, entertainment, and other bits and pieces of university life that don't usually get covered in a brochure.
Student Services Student services can help answer the nitty gritty questions about applying and enrolling at AECC. They might not have specific answers about every aspect of your potential course, but they will be able to answer any questions about how the university runs on a day to day basis and what you'll need to know as a student.
Students' Unions The Students' Union takes charge of the social side of university life. They organise events throughout the year from socials to sports nights. The Students' Union is also responsible for being the voice for all students at AECC, so they're there to help with the challenges of university life.
You'll also get an opportunity to chat to people from the university's societies and clubs and you can find out how to join once you're a student.
There will also be opportunities to visit the student's halls, Lulworth Hall to check out accommodation options.
