  • Open day

    Hi all
    Is anyone planning on attending the warsash open day in June?
    If so give me a shout and maybe we could have an officer cadet gathering to meet people before we go maybe?
    Just an idea lol.

      I thought about going but not sure. I mean, I've got my offer and should hopefully be going to Warsash anyway, but then might be nic to actually see the place before going.

          I have too but it seems like it is aimed at people who have a place already so might go along for the fun of it

            It's a good opportunity to get used to the college before you go, especially to ask some last min questions

                  Open days have to be planned when facilities and staff are available - you would be annoyed if you travelled down to Warsash to find all of the workshops/simulators/equipment off-limits as courses are running, and all the staff too busy teaching to talk to you. It isn't possible to co-ordinate this with the personal availability of every group of potential cadets. I'm sorry that you won't be able to attend, but we're certainly not idiots.

                    Re: Open day

                    Yeah, I would have gone with "silly billies" myself.

                    I reckon the regulated nature of the RFAs military fetish camp might make it theoretically possible for Warsash to shift the dates to later on in the year (or maybe at either end of the Spring holiday - many unis have more than one open day)... but educational establishments are bureaucratic places and there are always vested interests that prevent what seem like common sense decisions from being made - usually to do with staff wanting to take most of their holiday time in the late summer, I'll warrant; and maybe also to do with things like routine maintenance; new building work; renting out facilities to corporate outfits for a bit of sucky****y fi' dorra.

                    Having said that, I don't see there's much point in RFAers going on an open day - the point of an open day is to have a sniff about around a few institutions to see which you prefer; but as an RFA cadet, they don't have any choice, so why bother?!

                      Re: Open day

                      Due to the range of courses, phases and multiple annual intakes, Warsash operates almost all year round - not like a normal university faculty where teaching finishes mid May, and restarts in late September. We actually open and teach over more weeks of the year than state secondary schools. The cadets normally have a 4 week break over August, when all the Professional Studies lecturers usually take their leave (we can't normally take leave during term time, for obvious reasons). Over this time, the bulk of the annual maintentance/upgrades/building works are completed. This unfortunately limits the opportunities to run open day events. If anyone really wants to look around, and can't make the open day, then contact WMA directly, and we may be able to make alternative arrangements for you to have a look round and talk to the staff.
