City and campus experience days

Please note, both events are now fully booked. Campus tours are still available and can be booked by emailing the campus tours team.


Our city and campus experience day has been designed to give you an opportunity to explore our campus, the city of Plymouth and the surrounding local area in the absence of our physical open days and offer holder days.

This is an applicant only event. If you have not yet made an application but would like to see the campus please email campustours@plymouth.ac.uk to organise a tour.

The events will be running on:

Friday 9 July 2021 - 09:30-15:45 - This event is now fully booked

Thursday 15 July 2021 - 09:30-15:45 - This event is now fully booked

This event will include the following:

  • A campus tour: A socially distanced campus tour led by one of our Student Ambassadors. This will allow you to be able to explore the campus and discover more about student life here at Plymouth.
  • A city bus tour: These bus tours give you an opportunity to explore the city of Plymouth with a guided commentary pointing out significant landmarks and gives you the opportunity to see just how close the campus is to the waterfront.
  • A boat tour: The boat tours will allow you see Plymouth from a different perspective.

This event will be socially distanced throughout meaning there will be a limited amount of spaces. There will be three start times for the event, to allow us to ensure social distancing, these can be found below:

Group 1: 09:30-12:45
Group 2: 11:00-14:15
Group 3: 12:30-15:45

When booking, please choose the event sessions you would like to attend, by selecting either group 1, group 2 or group 3. If you are unable to select the group, that means it has reached capacity and no longer is available.

Please note: We are asking everyone to carry out at home Covid tests before the morning of the event and to then bring proof of a negative test to us when registering upon arrival, just to ensure everybody’s safety.

If you are familiar with the city of Plymouth and do not wish to have a bus or boat tour, please email: campustours@plymouth.ac.uk and we can organise a campus tour for you.
