At our Open Days there are a number of activities to choose from. You can use your personal open day RSVP link to book sessions once they are open for bookings; you will find this link in your booking confirmation email.

You will have the chance to:

  • Watch a range of subject talks all about the courses that we offer at Birmingham
  • Explore campus with a campus tour led by one of our expert student ambassadors
  • Find out more about our accommodation with an accommodation village tour, with student ambassadors and staff on hand to answer your questions
  • Get all of your questions answered about the courses you’re interested in through chatting to our academics and students, with some subjects also offering departmental facility tours*

We’ll also have a number of food outlets available for you to grab something to eat, as well as other activities to help you understand what life is like on campus as a student at the University of Birmingham.

There are check-in booths located across campus and when you arrive you’ll be given a map of campus to help you navigate your way around. Staff and students will be based at all key entry points to campus and they’ll all be in bright green t-shirts – you can’t miss them! Speak to any of our staff and students on the day if there are particular places on campus that you’d like to see, and we’ll point you in the right direction and help you to plan your day.

We can’t wait to welcome you – we know you’ll love it here as much as we do.

*Please note that some subjects will have limited availability for some activities at our open day events
