Due to ongoing effects of the coronavirus pandemic, the University will be hosting Open Days virtually until further notice. The next Open Day will be held 2&3 July 2020. Details and booking here.


On Thursday 2 and Friday 3 July you will have the opportunity ask current students and staff questions in live Q&A sessions. You will also be able to access other live online events. Please note that the live online sessions offered on Thursday 2 and Friday 3 July will be broadly the same on both days. The Virtual Open Days will be hosted on our new Virtual Tour. The Virtual Tour includes 360 degree photography, articles and films from our Colleges and departments, alongside our Open Day specific events.

From Monday 29 June to Sunday 5 July, you will be able to find out about the University and Colleges by accessing pre-recorded presentations about our courses, the Colleges and departments, the application process, student life, and finance.
