Planning your visit

Before you arrive

Queens' Building, QMUL Mile End campus

Plan ahead. It is easy to feel that there is just too much to do and see at university open days. In our experience people who plan their day in advance often feel they have made the most of their visit. The event opens from 9.30am and finishes at 4pm. You are welcome to come and leave at any time of your choosing.

A range of activities will be available on the day such as:

Subject Information Points

Throughout the day our academic schools will host activities about the subjects you can study at QMUL. At each Subject Information Point you can meet staff from the school including academics; ask questions about the course and teaching; tour the teaching facilities and listen to talks about subjects you’re interested in. Places on these talks are limited so you are advised to arrive early at the lecture theatre to take your seats.

Subject-specific and general talks

The Undergraduate Open Day has a dedicated programme of lectures on specific subjects to help you gain a better understanding of the courses you want to study. As well as subject-specific talks we offer a range of general interest talks including student finance, residences, the Principal’s welcome and more to help you make an informed decision about your higher education studies.

Places for all talks are limited so you are advised to arrive early at the lecture theatre to take your seats as these are offered on a first-come-first-serve basis. We run most talks a few times during the day so there may be further opportunities if you miss out.

Please note that we cannot guarantee a place for family and friends when there is a high demand for a particular talk, as applicants will be given priority.
