They are packed with opportunities for you to see a range of facilities, meet staff and students, and experience the atmosphere of the University for yourself.

They are a great way to find out more about the campuses, our locations and the degree programmes on offer. These events are informative and varied, and include:

  • subject presentations and sample lectures
  • a tour of the campus and student accommodation
  • general presentations on all aspects of student life
  • the opportunity to talk informally to lecturers in your chosen subject and meet representatives from a range of support services.

Before booking a place at one of the Open Days we strongly recommend that you visit our subject and programme pages to check at which campus your subject is taught, and to see the latest information about our entry requirements.
