Open Days

Undergraduate Open Days in 2016

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. 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.

If you require any extra support during your visit due to a disability, please contact us at For information about support available to disabled students please see our AccessAbility Centre.
