Open Day tips

Quiz the experts - nobody knows a course better than the person who teaches it. At an Open Day, you can quiz tutors and decide whether their course is right for you. You can find info on loads of other courses too, who knows, you might discover something brand new.

Attend talks - talks are perfect for giving you info on things you may not have even thought about. From fees and finance, to student life and societies, talks are varied and take place throughout the day. Plan the talks you want to attend in advance.

See it to believe it - you’re not just choosing a university, you’re choosing a campus, a city and a lifestyle. Give yourself time to discover everything the university and city have to offer for you, don’t just believe the rumours. Chat to the Students’ Union about sports, societies and social life and head into the city for a bite to eat.

Bring your friends and family - don’t go it alone; take a friend or someone from the family. It’s a good idea to talk things through with someone after an Open Day, especially if it’s your first one.

We have a parents and carers lounge at our Open Day where they can attend talks designed just for them, and you can take a break.

Plan your personal statement - at an Open Day you’ll be able to get insider tips on what to include in your statement so be sure to chat to the tutors about it. We run personal statement writing workshops at our Open Days to give you an edge.

Chat with our students

If you want to find out what studying at Bradford is really like then why not ask our students?
