What is an open day?

It’s an opportunity to come onto campus and explore our facilities, teaching areas and accommodation. You’ll get the chance to attend course talks and meet our lecturers, current students and support staff to find out more about us and answer any of your questions.

We also offer postgraduate open events for those interested in studying at postgraduate level.

Explore your campus

Once you’ve made a booking for an open day, we will let you know which campus to attend.

During the open day, you can jump on a guided tour of your campus led by current students. You’ll be able to view the outstanding facilities, teaching areas and social spaces.

You can also visit our off-campus accommodation – Pittville Student Village in Cheltenham and Blackfriars Residences in Gloucester.

Can’t make it to an open day?

If you’re unable to make it to an Open Day, you’re welcome to book a campus visit where our student ambassadors will be on hand to show you around the campus. Campus visits are smaller-scale events that last between 45 minutes and up to 2 hours; they always include a campus tour.
