Applicant's Day brings thousands of young people to Linnanmaa on 1–2 November – Congestion expected in restaurants and hallways
During the event days, congestion is expected, especially in restaurants and along Väylä, where the event's presentation points are located.
In the event, the University of Oulu introduces all more than 40 bachelor's programmes and some of the master's programmes from eight faculties. There are educational experts and students to answer the questions of the participants. The open university will also be presented, as it provides an open pathway as an opportunity to enter university studies.
The event has been called Oulun korkeakoulupäivä in the previous two years and the fair has been organised in Ouluhalli. Before that, the university organised Abipäivät on the Linnanmaa campus and Oamk Avoimet ovet event on its campuses for a long time. Events have always been popular.
"The event will now make a return to Linnanmaa at the wish of the visitors and will be held for the first time in the common spaces of the University of Oulu and Oulu University of Applied Sciences. Based on the visitor feedback, the studetn counsellors and participants want to see and experience a genuine campus environment," says Marketing Designer Elisa Härkönen from the University of Oulu.
