What is a campus open day?

Campus open days are an excellent opportunity for prospective students to experience what life could be like at any one of our partner universities. Students will be introduced to the campus, academic schools, student housing and available support services, as well as given a sense of the community/lifestyle and much more, to ensure they are making a well-informed decision with their transfer choice. Friends and family are also welcome and encouraged to attend.
