Open Days

Our Open Days give you the perfect opportunity to meet some of our current students and teaching staff to hear about living and studying at Leicester.

The dates of our Undergraduate Open Days for 2016 entry are:

Please see the programme (PDF) for this Open Day for further details of the day.

If you are unable to attend an Open Day but would still like to look round the campus, you can come to one of our Half-Term Campus Tours.

(We are holding a Postgraduate Information Fair on Wednesday 18 November.)

On an Undergraduate Open Day you will be able to explore our campus and accommodation, and find out about everything from course information, finance and careers to our award winning student support services. You can also speak to our current students and staff about their own experiences of life in Leicester. Our programme of tours and talks has been designed to give you the flexibility to select the activities that are of most interest to you.

To attend an open day you will need to book a place using our online booking form. We welcome students attending on their own, with friends or family, or in group bookings from schools and colleges.
