Virtual Open Day

A Virtual Open Day is your chance to find out what’s waiting for you at UWE Bristol from the comfort of your own home.  

What to expect

If you can’t get to one of our Open Days on campus or you prefer to do things digitally, our Virtual Open Day will help you explore UWE Bristol from the comfort of your own home.

Find out all about our courses, facilities, accommodation and student life to see if UWE Bristol is the right university for you.

How to prepare for your Virtual Open Day

  1. Step 1

    Visit our Open Day page to view upcoming events and pick the one that is most relevant to you. Follow the steps to book your place on one of our Virtual Open Days.

  2. Step 2

    You'll either be asked to book your course talks and student support service sessions when signing up, or later on via email. Complete this step to build your day and schedule dedicated slots to speak to academic and professional services staff.

  3. Step 3

    Once you have booked on to your sessions, you'll receive an email with your e-ticket, which shows your timetable for the day. Save this email as you can use it to change your sessions later on if necessary. It can also be used to access your sessions on the day (although you'll also be sent reminders).

  4. Step 4

    On the day, you can join a course talk by selecting ‘join as a guest’. If you select ‘sign in’, you will either not be able to join the event, or your name and email address may be visible to other attendees.

    Once you've joined, you’ll be prompted to enter a name. Just enter your first name as this information will be visible to other attendees.

    Please note that course talks may be recorded and published on our YouTube channel for marketing purposes. Only our presenters will be identifiable on the published recordings. Q&A sessions will not be published. 

  5. Step 5

    You'll need a Unibuddy account to attend most of our student support service text chats on admissions, disability support and more. Once signed up, you can use your login details for further Unibuddy events.

    You’ll be able to access our student money advice and accommodation talks by clicking the link in your ticket.

    For a better online talk experience, you can read the Microsoft Teams accessibility features.

  6. Step 6

    Access your sessions via your e-ticket or the session reminder emails that you'll be sent on the day. Find out everything you need to know from our friendly staff, and come prepared with any questions you'd like to ask the experts.
