Open days

Unfortunately, we have had to postpone our April undergraduate open day on 25 April 2020 and are in the process of contacting those visitors who had registered for it. We will continue to assess the situation regarding our undergraduate open day on the 24 June 2020 and will contact visitors who have registered for this event if the situation changes. We are already in the process of organising virtual events with the aim of providing you with information to make informed decisions about studying with the University of Plymouth. We will be advertising these as the details get finalised.

We understand that you may have many questions about coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on your application to the University of Plymouth.

“For me, going to an open day not only confirmed that I wanted to study in Plymouth, but that I wanted to go to university in the first place. I believe open and applicant days are a fundamental part of the application process, as it provides an opportunity to break down that barrier of unfamiliarity with the location, the course, and the idea of being a student.”
