Gaming technology will be to the fore as Hull University showcases its facilities to prospective new students this weekend.

Saturday will give as many as 5,000 learners the chance to see how the university is developing state-of-the-art virtual reality and gaming devices.

The campus is throwing open its doors for an open day designed to offer visitors a glimpse of facilities at Britain’s forthcoming city of culture.

It has already staged one such day earlier in October with another set to follow.

Virtual reality goggles will transport attendees to view the stage and recently upgraded Brynmor Jones Library.

Hull’s WelcomeFest is also providing course information via professors, lecturers, seminars and mini-lectures. Scholarship, bursary and merit scholarship details are also being discussed.

The university is also putting on tours of Hull and the uni’s student accommodation, campus and new nightclub to show what it and the city has to offer.

Uni vice-chancellor Calie Pistorius calls the campus “vibrant” and “wonderful”. He says that new students joining for 2016 will get the opportunity to attend and/or take part in Hull’s City of Culture year.
