Event Overview

Choosing the right university for you can be a tough decision. Your time at university is a life changing opportunity where you make unforgettable memories with lifelong friends and kick start your future career! If you are still undecided nothing will help you make your mind up more than attending an Open Day and experiencing first-hand what we offer.

Our Open Days give you the opportunity for you to explore our beautiful campuses each with their own unique characteristics and excellent facilities. Our Ambleside campus is home to the Institute of Science and Environment, and our Institute of Arts. Enjoy outdoor practical activities and facility tours, as well as talks and campus and accommodation tours.

During the day our expert academic staff will be running subject talks where you can get a real flavour of the course and see how passionate and enthusiastic our tutors are about their specialist subject. Our academics will be on hand after these sessions to answer any questions you may have about your course of interest.

In addition, we will be running a series of optional workshops throughout the day where you can find out information about the application process, accommodation, fees and finance and student support.

Complimentary refreshments will also be provided for you and your guests on the day.
