There are lots of activities happening on our Open Day in order to give you every opportunity to discover new perspectives with us.

Open day talk in a lecture theatre

Subject talks

Subject talks are delivered by our world-class academics who give you a comprehensive overview of a specific subject area and the programmes that sit within it. They cover everything you need to know in order for you to get to know better the subject area that you have chosen to study including entry requirements, facilities, modules, accreditations, graduate careers and other useful information.

Taster lectures

In addition to the subject talks offered at the Open Day, which give you an insight into what the course is about, some of our academic schools also offer a range of interesting taster lectures. These lectures address a variety of fascinating topics which people interested in a variety of subjects will find appealing.
