Undergraduate open days

Your open day programme

To help you plan your day in advance we will send you a copy of the programme one week before the day.

A full printed version of the programme will also be available for you to collect from registration when you arrive at the open day.

Arrival and registration

The undergraduate open day runs from 9.00am until 4.30pm.

On arrival to the campus, please collect your goody bag and register your attendance with a member of the registration team in the Roland Levinsky building. The registration team will talk you through the programme for the day and answer any questions you may have. We strongly advise that you check the times of the talks and subject sessions that you are interested in, as some sessions are only run once.

Visitor feedback

Our open days have been rated 4.5 out of 5 stars. These ratings derive from visitor feedback surveys**.

“All of the staff and students that I spoke to were so enthusiastic about the University and about the course that they were taking. They were all happy to speak to me and help if I had a question or needed directions.”

“Everyone was very welcoming and was lovely. I didn't feel like I was burdening anyone if I was lost and everyone was happy to help! Would just like to say thank you for making my day worth it and making me feel comfortable in an environment that was new to me!”
