Our Open Day gives you a chance to see what goes on in the Department, and talk to students, lecturers and other potential applicants. The  information desk is manned by current undergraduates, who will offer informal tours of our undergraduate teaching areas. Lectures, displays and demonstrations illustrate aspects of our undergraduate course and the research which unpins it.

Open days are free, and there is no need to book.
