When we arrived at UCS we were brought into the reception area and then we were taken into a lecture room and given a talk about the university and its development as it progresses in what it can do. We were also shown the timetable for the day and give visitor cards that allowed us to pass into the library building later on in the day.
Once we left the lecture room we walked to another building that was a part of the university and were given tours of the different science labs and the types of work that is done on the different courses. This included looking at different chemistry labs, a microscope lab and the sports lab area in which athletes come into the college and are measured for the way in which the muscles work and how to get maximum performance.
We then were taken into the building in which the radiography courses take place and were shown the different ways that the course works, we used 3D goggles to look at the way that a computer program can allow the students to experience the working environment, they then took us into smaller rooms as smaller groups and showed us the computer imaging used for the CT scans and the way that radiotherapy works on the body and how efficient it is.
After lunch we were taken back into the lecture room from the beginning of the day and shown the different methods to look at the body through radiography, this included x-rays, CT scans, MRI scans, ultra sound and many more methods. We were also informed of the different injury names and how many different types of break (of bone) there are, while we also learned of how diagnostics work in hospitals and how there are many different methods to cure an illness/injury. Once we were taught all of this we were given a quiz on how much we could remember which ended the day. We finished by filling out a feed-back form asking about our course preferences and how we felt about the day at UCS.
Overall I thought the day at UCS was great as it showed many different parts and different opportunities that the university has to offer to potential students. Also I thought that through showing us all different buildings that make up the university and not staying in just one section it allows potential students that there is a lot more to the university than what people might think.
