What happens at university open days?


Attending a university open day gives you the opportunity to:

  • Get subject information delivered by our academic staff, to give you a real taste of the courses we offer.
  • Quiz our current students on every aspect of student life.
  • Take a tour of Campus.
  • Get a feel for our halls of residences
  • Speak to advisors and find out about bursaries, scholarships, accommodation and student support.
  • Ask your questions about postgraduate options.
  • Chat to the Students’ Union and meet representatives from our clubs and societies.

Open day FAQs


  • 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 (be that virtually or via a campus tour). 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 yours as soon as possible.

    Although physical, face to face events arent available at the moment (following Government guidelines), making a booking will be especially important for any on campus events or tours in the future as capacities will be controlled in order to comply with social distancing.

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

  • When making such an important decision, it can be very helpful to have a second opinion from someone you trust. For our virtual open days you can share links with friends and family or ask them to register with us directly. If you are attending an on campus event, make sure you check  how many guests you can bring with you before you travel as social distancing measures may limit capacity.

  • 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.
