Our open days give you the chance to hear more about our two new undergraduate courses, meet staff and students, and get a real feel for life at Warwick. Usually, we hold four on-campus open days per year in June and October. Due to current coronavirus restrictions these are being held virtually.
Virtual Open Day - Saturday 19 June: REGISTER HERE
Join us to find out more about our courses, experience a taster session and find out what life as an undergraduate science student at Warwick Medical School could be like! You can view and register for our available sessions here: Warwick Medical School Agenda - Saturday 19 June 2021
Thanks to our detailed 360 tour, you can still explore our amazing campus – including learning facilities, our beautiful open spaces and student accommodation – all from the comfort of your sofa.
(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 Outreach 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 offer sessions at other key 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.
We are hoping to hold a Taster Day in Autumn 2021, more information will be available soon.
The Medical School supports and participates in a range of outreach and public engagement activities throughout the academic year. From Science on the Hill to Pint of Science, Discovery Weeks plus School Visits and Work Experience opportunities (and more!), we are committed to actively engaging with the public to share our knowledge and research. In addition to School-led activities, we also actively support the University's wider Outreach and Engagement objectives.
We hold regular live online chats where you can chat to members of our course teams and ask any questions you may have. Please register your interest and we'll let you know when the next session is booked.
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.
