University of Bath

Coming to a Department Open Day

If you receive an offer from us to study for an undergraduate degree, we'll invite you to a Department Open Day to help you make a decision about studying here.

Helping you choose

Choosing where to study your undergraduate degree is a big decision. Our Department Open days give you an idea of what it's like to study here and the chance to ask all the questions you need to make your decision.

You can learn more about the subjects you'll study and meet current students and members of staff. You can also learn about the admissions process and take a tour of the University's facilities.

You can come to a Department Open Day when you have received an offer of a place to study at Bath. By the end of the day, you will be well-informed to make a decision about studying at Bath.
