Competition: win a mini-break!

'Bursting with potential, alive with opportunity, Plymouth is a thriving urban area, sitting snugly between moors and shores...' That’s how Britain’s Ocean City is described in a new Lonely Planet guidebook, produced with the University.

It showcases all that the city has to offer, from breathtaking scenery to cool independent bars, and lots of advice for students about university life.

To help you make the most of the next Plymouth University Open Day, we’re giving away a two-night break for four. Take in a show at Theatre Royal, enjoy a meal at Royal William Yard, and stay at a city-centre hotel, all on us. For a chance to win, just answer this question:

On which of these dates is the next Plymouth University Open Day?

A) 29 April 2017
B) 5 August 2017
C) 2 December 2017

The closing date for all entries is 14 March 2017.
