Do you want to help out in November? Sign up now!

Open Days are the cornerstone of our undergraduate home/EU recruitment at Leicester, with more than 6,000 prospective students and 14,000 total visitors in attendance each year.

Our staff are absolutely vital to the ongoing success of our Open Days, with your friendliness being one of the most important aspects in visitors’ experience. The interactions visitors have with staff on the day make a huge difference to their enjoyment of the Open Day and ultimately to the likelihood of them applying to Leicester.

Our next Open Day is: Saturday 17 November

Working on an Open Day means that you will be directly assisting with undergraduate recruitment to the University. They are a rewarding and fun way to spend a day, and provide you with a chance to meet and interact with prospective students first-hand.

What are typical staff roles?

  • Registration desk
  • Lecture Theatre stewarding
  • Information points
  • Welcome team at Leicester Racecourse park and ride

Academic departments will organise their staff to volunteer for student facing activities, and these key interactions are vitally important in enthusing prospective students about their time here. We would encourage all our academics to get involved.

How to get involved

  • Confirm with your line manager that they are happy for you to work the Open Day. Confirm your time off in lieu arrangement with your line manager.
  • Contact Lucy Wade law14@le.ac.uk in the Future Students Office to register your availability.
