How do I register for an Open Day?
Please select the required type and number of tickets and complete the registration process to reserve your place. You will then receive an email confirmation of your booking. Prospective students interested in our postgraduate courses are invited to email firstname.lastname@example.org to book an appointment.
Who can attend?
Prospective students can attend together with their parents, friend or partner. We also welcome teachers and advisors. Please note that visitors under the age of 16 need to be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Do I need to book a place?
Yes, we have a limited number of spaces available for each Open Day and so you really need to pre-register. You can reserve extra tickets if you would like to bring a relative or friend.
For health and safety reasons, we are not able to accommodate anyone who has not pre-registered.
Do I need to bring written confirmation of my booking with me?
While having a printed booking confirmation is not required upon check-in, however, having a paper ticket will help speed up the registration process.
