What Happens at Open Day

Your Open Day programme

Our undergraduate open day runs from approximately 08:30 to 15:30, with most departments open from around 09.30.

When you arrive at Open Day you’ll be welcomed by our staff and student ambassadors, they will help you check in, direct you towards talks and activities and point out where to get refreshments.

As you register for Open Day you will be able to pre-book onto any departmental ticketed activities. All other sessions are either run as a drop-in, on a first-come-first-served basis or there will be tickets to collect on the day (see programme for details).

To help you plan your day in advance, browse the programme and organise a schedule to suit your own pace, attending the talks and sessions that interest you the most.  Typical highlights include:

  • Subject specific talks, tours and activities
  • Tours of the campus, student accommodation and city
  • Talks on finance, study abroad, accommodation and completing your application.
