Open Day event programme

Our courses are taught across four campuses/sites, each with their own unique feel and community. To help you make the most of your Open Day experience, your subject-specific sessions will be hosted on the campus/site relevant to your course.

There will be both subject-specific sessions and general talks on the day so please make sure you give yourself enough time to attend all sessions that are relevant to you.
