Complete List of Uni Open Days 2024

When choosing a university, attending an open day can give you a good idea of what being a student feels like. You will get the opportunity to chat to academic tutors, course leaders and current students on campus. Lecturers will be on hand to answer your course content and facilities questions - ask them everything! During a campus tour, make sure to visit the places you'd go often as a student, such as the students' union or library facilities. Visiting the campus in person can spark a feeling of wanting to study there, or not - perhaps more than if you were to view the university website or read league table statistics.

Open days can also help you when choosing a course, as you can attend multiple introductory lectures from different faculties and explore the buildings of different subjects. However, university life isn't just about your course! Whilst visiting the university campus, you should take some time to explore the town or city nearest to the university.

Making an Open Day Shortlist

So how do you decide which university open days to visit? You can check out the StudentCrowd league table to compare your options and read student reviews to inform your decision. Think about course entry requirements and identify universities that match up to your grade expectations.

Depending on what type of university course you are applying for, check whether the open day is suitable for you. Some universities offer undergraduate open days - which would be unhelpful to attend if you are looking to study for a Master's Degree or PhD.

Virtual Open Days

If you are unable to attend an in-person open day, lots of universities offer virtual open days which are suitable for international students or people who don't have the time/funds to travel across the country. Travel expenses can stack up, especially with the cost of living rising in the UK, so if you are still exploring your options, attend an online open day before committing to a day trip to the university campus.

Read below to discover the upcoming in-person and virtual open days for universities in the UK.
