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.
What will you get from an Open Day at UWE Bristol?
Get a feel for it
Some things need to be experienced for yourself. And that’s what Open Days are all about. Get a feel for the community, the facilities, and the area. Join one of our campus tours led – by one of our Student Ambassadors so you get the inside track – or if you prefer to go at your own pace, pick up a copy of our self-guided tour.
See where you could live
Get a feel for student living, whether it’s on campus at Frenchay and Glenside, or in our city centre accommodation. Drop in at a time to suit you during the day, and start imagining what it’ll be like to settle in come September.
