Open days

Virtual events

We’ve created online experiences as alternatives to open days:

  • Live talks and Q&As with academic staff and students
  • Recorded video presentations
  • Virtual tour of campus

Plymouth On Demand: virtual experiences

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are unsure whether all our planned on-campus open days can go ahead.

As well as following the latest UK government guidance, we are carefully monitoring the evolving situation to ensure that we can safely welcome you to campus.
