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. This event will be in line with the government guidelines and will be socially distanced throughout meaning there will be a limited amount of spaces.
When booking, please choose the event sessions you would like to attend. Please note that this is just an indication of which times you would prefer and we will endeavour to schedule these for you. However, due to social distancing and limited capacity on some tours this may not be possible. In this case we will try to find an alternative time slot for you. You will be contacted in the week prior to the events with a confirmed schedule for your day.
The campus tours will be led by our student ambassadors and will cover our main campus. These tours will be socially distanced. There will be a maximum group of 5 people on one tour and from no more than two households. Unfortunately, at this time we will not be able to enter any buildings on these tours due to cleaning being completed in preparation for the following week of teaching.
Campus Tours will be running throughout the day from 11:00 – 15:00. You will be contacted in the week prior to the event with the time of your campus tour, alongside your confirmed schedule.
