What to expect from an Open Day

What is a university Open Day?

Open Days are your chance to get stuck in and experience university life for yourself. Explore the campuses and see if we feel right for you. Check out facilities and accommodation, and take a tour of the city you might be calling home. Last but not least, get the insider’s perspective – after all, no one knows our university better than the staff and students here. They’ll be on hand for candid chats about courses, services and general university life.
