Open Days

Open Days

Open Days give you the opportunity to find out more about the University and decide whether Exeter is the right choice for you before you apply. The days 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.

We hold Open Days at our Exeter campuses and our Penryn Campus in Cornwall. 

They are a great way to find out more about the campuses, our locations and the degree programmes on offer. Our Open Days 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
  • talking informally to lecturers in your chosen subject
  • meeting representatives from a range of support services.

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