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:
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.


The remaining 2020 offer holder open days have been cancelled due to the current Cover-19 pandemic. Please scroll down the page to see how you can chat to us live instead.

Or why not visit our Online Open Day to find out whether studying here might suit you.

Chat to us live

To replace the 22 April offer holder open day we are going to offer three Live Chats. We appreciate that this won't be the same as coming to visit us but in the current situation we hope this is a useful replacement. Don't forget that you can email us at any time. Click on the links below to join.

22 April 2020
12 – 1pm. Chat to our Director of UG Admissions, Dr Kevin Purdy 
1 – 2pm. Chat with current students Kate (Biomedical Science) and Kerena (Biochemistry) 
2 – 3pm. Ask Laura Yetton, our Placements Officer, about careers, placements & work experience

Further Live Chats will be added in due course.

Visits to the School at Other Times

We are temporarily suspending our drop-in visits due to the current Covid-19 situation. We will resume them as soon as possible. In the meantime please visit our Online Open Day or email on Keep an eye on our Live Chat programme as we will be organising a series of Live Chats over the coming months. Please do keep in touch so that we can help with any queries.
