Open day FAQs

  • Uni open days give you the opportunity to find out more about a university and see everything it has to offer. The events are free and include information on the courses available and give a chance to explore the campus. This first-hand experience is invaluable in helping you decide where and what course you would like to study.

  • Open day places must be booked in advance, so make sure you secure a place on our remaining 2022 university open days as soon as possible.

    Making a booking is important for any on campus events or tours so that you get all the information you need to get the most out of your visit.

    If you can’t make it to a certain open day, there may be other events available and our campus tours run throughout the year. Check out our campus tours page for more information.

  • When making such an important decision, it can be very helpful to have a second opinion from someone you trust. That’s why you are very welcome to bring guests along.

  • When it comes to what to wear to a uni open day, there are no set rules but during our on campus open days, as you will be touring the campus, comfortable footwear is recommended. Bear in mind that you may also be meeting your future tutors, so it’s a good idea to avoid wearing anything inappropriate.

  • Those looking to study postgraduate courses with us are welcome to attend our open days for a PG drop in. We also host postgraduate specific events. To find out more, visit our postgraduate events page to see our upcoming postgraduate events.

  • If you are interested in MA History, MSc Public Health or Health and Social Care CPD courses, these won’t be at the open day. This is because their class format means that there are better ways we can tell you about them.

    If you have a course enquiry, the best option is to contact the course teams directly via the details on the course web pages. We also periodically run webinars for these courses so check out our Events Listings for what is coming up and the latest info regarding uni open days in 2022.

  • Free parking is available on open days in car park 4 at Waterside Campus. Please use the following postcode NN4 8RR to find us.

    If you’re planning to travel using our Park & Ride, make sure you use this address: Saints Car Park, Edgar Mobbs Way, Sixfields, Northampton, NN5 5JR. There is usually a cost for the Park & Ride but it is free to use during our open days.

    If you plan to travel by train, please plan your journey in advance. When you arrive in Northampton, we’ve got you covered from the train station to campus. The open day bus from the Park and Ride stops at the station and our Student Ambassador (wearing a blue uniform) will be on hand to point you in the right direction.

    If you are from London or Milton Keynes we do also offer free transport, further details will be emailed to you when you register.
