Open days

What happens on the day?

Student ambassadors at Information Point at our Ealing campus

Your arrival

Our open days normally begin at 10am and finish at 3pm. Ahead of each event we'll send you a planner for the day. Please use this to choose the most appropriate arrival time.

On arrival you'll be asked to complete a fast track registration form. You have the option to fill this out in addition to registering online, to make the process faster on the day. You're also able to register on the day if you haven't done so already.


There will be a number of talks throughout the day to help you find out about our courses and facilities. We recommend that you go to your subject talk before visiting the course fair to make the most of your time. Many of our talks are repeated so you can time your visit to suit your schedule.

Course fair

If you still have follow up questions after your talk, you can visit the academic team at the course fair.

Our Careers Team will also be available on the day to tell you all about the service they provide and have more information about why 98% of our graduates are in employment or further study within six months of graduating*.


We organise various tours throughout the day. These include:

  • Accommodation - You have the opportunity to visit our student halls. A free shuttle bus runs regularly throughout the day.
  • Simulation Centre - A must see facility for students interested in our Nursing, Midwifery and Healthcare courses.
  • Campus - Our student ambassadors run regular tours of the Ealing site throughout the day. If there's anywhere in particular you'd like to visit, please let your guide know at the start of the tour.
  • Subject specific tour - To find out if your course is running specialist facility tours, just ask at one of the Help desks.
  • Library - Students spend a lot of their time at the library, so why not visit our new library for a guided tour.
