For the first time Birmingham City University will be providing up-to-date information about its Open Days via a blog. Anyone will be able to find out more about the University by following Five thousand people have signed up to attend the two Open Days which will be taking place on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 October. The blog has already gone live and during Friday’s Open Day there will be a series of updates from across the University’s campuses. The blog is the latest technological advance for the University’s Open Days. During the June Open Days barcode scanning was introduced to make the registration process quicker and easier. This month as well as the introduction of the blog, the University will be trialling the use of barcodes which when scanned into a phone will display campus information. The barcodes called QR codes will be scattered around the City North Campus in Perry Barr to help visitors navigate the site. At the heart of the Open Days will be a wide range of activities, exhibitions and presentations giving visitors the chance to meet staff and students. Potential students will also have the opportunity to find out more about the University and learn about the extensive range of courses. Guided tours of the City North Campus will show off Birmingham City University’s facilities and on-site student accommodation. Visitors to this campus will also have the option of booking on to a fascinating tour of the city. Birmingham Institute of Art and Design (BIAD) will also throw open the doors to its campus at Gosta Green, at the School of Jewellery in Birmingham’s historic Jewellery Quarter, at the Department of Art and at the Bournville Centre for Visual Arts. The Faculty of Technology, Engineering and the Environment will also be open at Millennium Point where visitors can experience our range of courses in this area. Visitors interested in a range of health related courses including Nursing and Radiography can also visit our City South Campus where they can view our state of the art facilities which include mock wards and a simulated operating theatre
