Book an open day now

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.

On an Undergraduate Open Day you will be able to explore our campus and accommodation, and find out about course information, finance, careers and 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 2015 programme (PDF) will give you an idea of the tours, talks and activities available on the day. A programme for each Open Day will be available before the event.

To attend an Open Day you will need to book a place using our online booking form. You are welcome to attend with friends or family, in a group from your school or college, or on your own.

(Please note that there will be no information about the degree in Operating Department Practice on 22 July, and no information about the degree in Physiotherapy on 17 September.)

UCAS Visit Days

Our UCAS Visit Days are for you if you have already been made an offer to study with us and would like to visit the campus and your department.

Postgraduate Information Fair

Interested in postgraduate study? We hold an annual Postgraduate Information Fair in November.

Lifelong Learning

We organise a series of open events throughout the year so that you can find out more about our lifelong learning courses.

Undergraduate Taster Conference

Our Taster Conferences usually take place in December each year. You'll be able to experience a day of inspirational and engaging taster lectures and gain an insight into campus life and our excellent facilities.

Travel and Parking Information

On Open Days, a free park-and-ride shuttle bus runs between Leicester Racecourse (LE2 4AL) and the main campus. Please note that the only parking available on the main campus is for visitors who have a blue badge or mobility difficulties (please contact for assistance).
