Events for parents and carers

Open Days

Parents and family members are welcome to attend our annual Open Days. These include tours of campus, presentations and talks, and have a range of information desks where you can speak to University staff – including academics and current students. We also hold applicant days and visit afternoons.

We’d love to show you around our university. See more about Open Days and other ways to visit us.
