Undergraduate open days

Before you register for this virtual event, please take the time to read how the subject sessions will run.

Once you have registered, you will receive a confirmation email which will contain a full schedule of events including Zoom links to the virtual Q&As.

Using Zoom

The Q&As will be delivered through Zoom. If you do not have a Zoom account please set one up for free by visiting the Zoom website.

You will need to be logged into your own Zoom account to be able to join the sessions.

On the day

Follow the URL that will be provided on your confirmation email to get to the Zoom meeting.

If you are early to the meeting, Zoom will update and refresh your page when the meeting host has started the meeting.

The Zoom link you will receive when registered will be for the whole academic school. Once you arrive into that meeting there will then be the subject specific rooms where the Q&As will take place – please see below for lists of subjects that belong in each school.

For the subject-specific Q&As, we will allocate you into your rooms based on your course choice on the registration form so please select the course whose Q&A session you would like to attend.

During the session

Your camera and microphone will be automatically turned off and muted when you enter the session and will remain so throughout.

Your Zoom username will be displayed on screen and will be visible to other participants in the meeting.

If you would like to ask a question in the session please ask them via the chat function, but please remember your question will be visible to the other participants.

The member of staff hosting the Q&A will be able to see your questions and answer them during the session.

If you would like to leave the meeting at any point, please press the ‘Leave meeting’ button found in the bottom right hand of the screen.

Ending the session

Once the Q&A has finished the host will do this for you which will automatically end the meeting.

If you want to move to a Q&A session for another course, please leave the room and go back to the main meeting room where you can let the host know which room you would like to be moved into.

On-campus open days

We very much hope that the current situation in the UK continues to improve and we will be able to welcome you to our campus soon. We will continue to follow Government guidance but we hope to be able to welcome you to an “in-person” open day in the Autumn. We will continue to update our webpages and keep in touch with you via email if the situation changes.

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.

All our on-campus and virtual open days are designed to give you a taste of Plymouth, connect you with passionate staff, and help you feel confident with your choice of course.

    Programme of activities

    We are planning for our Autumn events to take place on campus, but will be regularly reviewing guidelines to ensure the safety of our guests, students and staff. We have a range of welcome talks, finance talks, subject specific talks and drop-in sessions to provide you with all the information you require to choose the right undergraduate programme to meet your needs. We will also have pre-recorded talks for you to watch at your leisure.

    Plymouth on Demand offers a range of programme talks across the study programmes available at the University – perfect to get some initial questions on your course answered before attending an open day.

    After you have booked onto an event, we will keep in touch with you using the email address you registered with. In the lead-up to the event, we will send you a copy of the schedule. If you are attending an "in-person" event, we will provide you with a hard copy on the day when you register your attendance.

    Event photography and video

    Please be aware that some of the University of Plymouth's public events (both online and offline) may be attended by University staff, photographers and videographers, for capturing content to be used in University online and offline marketing and promotional materials, for example webpages, brochures or leaflets. If you, or a member of your group, do not wish to be photographed or recorded, please let a member of staff know.
