Many of our schools and departments will also be open to enable you to drop in at times throughout the afternoon to look around and speak to admissions representatives and current students. Full details will be included in the Open Day programme.
Local travel and parking
Open days are a very busy time for the University and as such we are only able to offer a limited number of pay and display parking spaces on these days. For your convenience, we would strongly recommend using public transport to reach us. The University of Birmingham is fortunate enough to have its own railway station, ‘University’. The centre of the main campus is just a five-minute walk from University station.
