Posted 13th Jul
A railway company is to offer free train tickets to all students going to a university's open day.

It follows warnings that disadvantaged families were not able to go to open days because of travel costs.

Jon Harris, of West Midlands Railway, said this pilot scheme was part of a commitment to making rail travel "accessible for all".

Students can register with the university for a voucher for a free ticket for the next open day in September, which can be used on West Midlands Railway and London Northwestern Railway services.

More info from the bbc site


Update 2: 3262315.jpg Delighted to share that @WestMidRailway have confirmed that they will pilot free travel to our open days. Massive thank you!

Other train companies can still come aboard. Help potential students get their future on track. @seanjcoughlan@WalkerWorcestertwitter.com/ros…/st

if you can find one i think you should..
Thats nice touch, I recall we could never visit any Unis so we were always applying blind back in the day whilst all the poshies waltzed off for a day out with daddys cash.We'd never even use a train till our mid20s.
Visiting is good motivation for making a decent application.

Now that you're dropping £27k in fees I would hope that students will put more effort into deciding where they go and what to study.

Aside from getting free food (sometimes) there's really not much financial support for open days so it is nice to see things like this

I miss the old £1 megabus tickets to Oxford.
