    Our Open Evening is a chance to explore what life as a postgraduate student is like at Oxford Brookes.

    See below for information about what's available on the day, but make sure you ask your own questions, find out what you need to know and create your own experience by planning your personal itinerary.

    Find out more about your course

    Our marketplace drop-in will give you the chance to hear more about many of our postgraduate courses from lecturers, students and support staff. To check which courses will be represented at the event, please visit our booking website.


    Accommodation will be included in our campus tours, which you don't have to book. If you have specific questions about accommodation, you can also speak to the Accommodation Bureau who are located in the Forum. For more information, check out our Accommodation pages.

    Campus tours

    If you aren’t familiar with our Headington campus, you can join a tour with one of our friendly postgraduate student ambassadors. They'll be able to give you useful information about the university, as well as a bit about their experiences of postgraduate student life at Oxford Brookes.

    You do not have to book a campus tour in advance. To join a tour of Headington Campus, speak to the students at the Enquiry Centre near the main reception.


    Staff from our Admissions Team will be available in the Forum to talk about offers, details about the required qualifications and application process for your course.

    Student finance

    Staff from our Student Finance team will be available in the Forum to give advice on course fees and funding opportunities for postgraduate students.

    Student life talks

    Presentations about postgraduate life at Oxford Brookes will be given by our student ambassadors throughout the evening. These presentations cover aspects of student life such as living in accommodation, social life, sport and societies. Both full-time and part-time postgraduate students will be giving talks.

    Booking is required for these talks and you can select your session on the booking website.

    Meet current postgraduate students

    Postgraduate Student Ambassadors will be available throughout open evening - they can point you in the right direction, answer any questions you might have, or just have a chat about life at Oxford Brookes.


    Our library will be open on Open Evening for you to drop in and explore, or take a 20 minute tour. Tours leave the Library Welcome Desk (JHB Level 1) at 3.30pm, 4pm and 4.30pm. If you miss a tour, please visit the Library at any time during the evening - you are very welcome!

    Just ask a member of staff or one of our students for directions on the day.


    The Careers Team will be in the Forum ready to answer your questions and the Head of Careers will be giving a presentation to tell you all about the support we offer our students. Oxford Brookes helps you boost your career prospects while at university and beyond. Academic staff in the subject drop-in areas will also be able to give you information about the kinds of careers your degree could lead to, and the work placement opportunities for different courses.

    Wheatley Campus (Engineering Courses)

    Please note: the above activities are running at Headington Campus only. For Engineering courses at Wheatley Campus, a separate schedule will be running, including the chance to look around our state-of-the-art workshops, laboratories and computer facilities, and speak to academic staff about our courses. For more information, please email uniopenday@brookes.ac.uk

    The sessions at Wheatley Campus are starting a little earlier in the day (2.50pm) to allow attendees, if you would like, to attend some of the more general postgraduate information sessions at the Headington Campus as well. Wheatley is a short shuttle bus ride from the Headington campus so there will be plenty of time to attend sessions on both campuses if desired.
