University Open Day 22 June 2018
Open Days are a great way to experience life at the University of Bath. Find out about our courses, attend talks, meet staff and students and tour our campus.
You need to register to come to this Open Day. You also need to book on to most talks and tours in advance as spaces are limited.
Bookings for talks and tours on the day are open. You may bring as many people with you to the Open Day as you would like. Please note, however, that due to the popularity of our events, a maximum of 1 additional person can accompany each prospective student into the talks and on the tours.
Take a look at our timetables to see our programme of talks and tours for the day. We also have a number of Department drop-in sessions and exhibitions which you do not need to book in advance. Our timetables have full listings of everything that is available on the day.

Travelling to the Open Day
On the day
Student Ambassadors and staff will be there to welcome and guide you. You'll be able to recognise them because they will be wearing red University T-shirts.
One thing we can't plan for is the weather. Please check the forecast and come prepared.
You can download the event programme, which lists all our talks and tours along with useful information for getting around campus. Printed copies will be available on the day.
Take a Self-guided campus tour
Our self-guided tour will help you explore our campus on Open Day at your own pace. It takes you all around the campus as well as through a variety of student accommodation and academic departments.
