University Open Days

There are two types of Open Days that you can attend if you would like to visit the University of Bath; University Open Days and our invitation only Department Open Days (UCAS Days).

University Open Days

If you are considering applying to study here then we encourage you to come along to our undergraduate open day to find out more.

The next University Open Day will take place in 2015.

The timetable of events, as well as accommodation viewing and central talk times, can be found on the University Open Day page.

You can also get information about how to get here and staying overnight.

Department talks

Come to our Department talks on the day to find out more about our courses - you will need to book to attend.

  • Social Work and Applied Social Studies
  • Sociology and Social Policy

Talks are given by academic staff from the Department of Social & Policy Sciences.

Can't attend the talk?

If the talk is fully booked then email the Open Day team ( as we will try to help fit you in.

If you are unable to attend a talk there are still plenty of things for you to do on the Open Day so it’s still worth attending.

You can find out about placement opportunities at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences Placements stand.
