Open day top tips
University open days are the only way to get a real feel for where you may end up studying.
Your choice of course is a very important decision, but it's also important to consider other factors such as the local area and the facilities on-site.
Both our Brentford and Ealing sites are surrounded by beautiful parks. This is Walpole Park in Ealing.
We want you to enjoy your visit to our open day, so here are our top tips on how to get the most out of your visit:
Plan your day
Take some time to plan your travel
and don't forget to take into account any changes in public transport service on the day.
Use our open day planner to plan which talks and advice sessions you wish to attend. It is better to plan your day around your subject talk of choice, fitting in the advice sessions around it.
Remember to leave yourself enough to time just sit and relax with a drink and snack so you can get a real feel for what it may be like to be a student here.

This is your best opportunity to ask us questions about the University and your course before you submit your application.
At the open day you will get the chance to speak to academic staff including Heads of School, current students
and representatives from our support services.
They will be expecting your questions and will be looking forward to talking to you.
Remember, there is no such thing as a silly question.
Wear comfortable clothes and bring a bag along to keep any literature you pick up all in one place.
We have various food outlets on site where you will be able to get either a drink and light snack or a full lunch.
also has many nice restaurants and pubs where you can get food and drink after.
Our UCAS Guru and subject specialist will be at the open day to offer their advice and guidance.
