Our on-campus open days give you the chance to hear more about our two new undergraduate courses, meet staff and students, visit the Medical School, tour the campus and get a real feel for life at Warwick. Usually, we hold four on-campus open days per year in June and October.
We know that, sadly, you can’t get to campus for our autumn open days this year because of the coronavirus measures that have been put in place. That’s why we’re bringing our open days to you (so you don’t even have to get out of your pyjamas!). We'll be holding virtual open days on the following dates this autumn:
Autumn 2020 Virtual Open Days - Friday 9 October, Saturday 10 October 2020, Saturday 24 October 2020 and Monday 26 October 2020.
Open day dates for 2021 are yet to be confirmed so please check back for updates.
(Please note: We do not offer an undergraduate entry medical programme and we hold separate open days for our graduate only entry MB ChB medical course.)
Taster Days and off-campus events
Our open days are a great way to get a broad overview of our courses but we understand that some of our prospective students can’t make our open days or want the opportunity to find out more about the Medical School and our courses. As such, we also hold a range of Taster Days and off-campus events throughout the year.
If you want to find out what life as a Warwick Medical School science student could be like, our Taster Days are a great way to get a hands-on experience of the course and meet Warwick Medical School students and staff. Our Taster Days typically run between 10.00am and 3.30pm and places must be booked in advance.
Dates for the 2020/21 academic year are TBC. Please check back for updates.
Are you based in London or the surrounding area? Discover more about the University of Warwick and Warwick Medical School in the heart of London with our Subject Information Evenings based at the Warwick in London hub. Registration for our Subject Information Evenings is essential as places are limited and book up quickly.
Dates for 2020 are TBC. Please check back here for updates and visit the Warwick in London pages to find out more.
We hold regular live online chats where you can chat to members of our course teams and ask any questions you may have. If you'd like to attend a chat please register your interest and we'll let you know when the next session is booked.
Offer Holder Open Days
In addition to our open days, we hold dedicated offer holder open days. These are intended to help you decide whether Warwick Medical School is the right choice for you once you've received an offer and will give you the chance to find out more about our courses and talk to the course teams. Places must be booked in advance.
You'll receive an automatic invitation to attend once your application has been processed and you've received an offer. You'll be able to book via an online booking form, and we'll send you the link to this with your invitation.
