Open Days, Visits & Live Chats

University Open Days

The University hosts a number of Open Days. During these Open Days we present course information and run live demonstrations illustrating some of the School's research. You will be able to join a tour around Life Sciences, which includes a visit to our labs, and attend a talk covering study with us and detail on our degrees. There will be members of staff and student ambassadors on hand to answer questions.

2020 Open Days:

The University will run two Virtual Open Weeks. 29 June - 3 July and 13 - 17 July. We'd love to meet you. Book a place.
Saturday 10 October
Saturday 24 October

Please be aware that these days are frequently oversubscribed and you must book a place in order to attend.

Offer Holder Open Days

In addition to our Open Days, we hold a series of dedicated Offer Holder Open Days. They are held on central University campus and the Gibbet Hill campus (location of the School of Life Sciences) and are only available when pre-booked.

You will receive an automatic invitation to attend once your application has been processed. You will book via an online booking form, details of which will be sent to you with the invitation. We very much hope you will be able to visit us.
