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. 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.

    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. If you are attending an on campus event, make sure you check  how many guests you can bring with you before you travel as there may be capacity limits for some event elements.

  • 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. We also host postgraduate specific events. To find out more, visit our postgraduate events page to see our upcoming postgraduate events.
