Open days in September and October

  • 12 September 2020
  • 17 October 2020

Join our mailing list and we'll let you know when you can book your place for our September and October open days.

Our undergraduate open days give you the chance to discover more about our world-class university. Take tours of the campus, the Students’ Union and accommodation. Listen to talks about studying abroad. Find out advice about student loans and grants and discuss the things that matter to you.

Academic departments hold talks throughout the day. Staff and students will be there to answer your questions. Most important of all, you get to find out how it feels - the atmosphere, the people, the campus and the city.

Campus tours

Come and take a tour of the University central campus. They take place on selected weekdays and leave at 1pm from the Students’ Union Welcome Desk.

If the date you’d like to visit doesn’t appear on the booking form, this means it’s either fully booked or that there is no tour taking place on that particular date.

Our top priority is always the health and safety of students, staff and those who make up our wider community across the globe.We are closely following the latest advice and guidance issued by the UK Government, Public Health England (PHE) and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. We will continue to take all appropriate and necessary steps, as required by the official advice, to keep our community safe.

Therefore we have taken the decision to cancel the Campus tours until further notice.
