Open Days

Open Days are an opportunity for you to come and see the University for yourself.

Students in the Playfair Library on Open Day

It’s a great chance to find out about student life in Edinburgh from the people who know it best: our students and staff.


For students considering entry to the University in September 2017, we will hold our undergraduate Open Days in 2016:

  • Friday 17 June 2016
  • Further dates for September 2016 to be announced


Our most recent Postgraduate Open Day took place on 18 November 2015.

We'll announce the date of our 2016 Open Day shortly.

Tours and visits

If you are unable to join us for our open day, there are other opportunities for you to meet University representatives or get an idea of campus life:

Doors Open Day

In September every year we take part in Doors Open Day, which give you free access to hundreds of fascinating buildings across our campuses.
