The Medical School offers a dedicated programme of events on open days. 

At an open day, you will be able to talk to our staff about how to apply for medicine, and have the opportunity to meet current students. You can also take part in tours of our facilities.

There are three undergraduate open days held every year – usually in June, September and October.

Booking usually opens six weeks in advance of each open day and are managed centrally in the University.


Student-led tours

Our student-led campus tours are ideal for students and their families who are unable to attend an open day.

While we do not offer tours of the Medical School at Little France for confidentiality and security reasons, the student-led campus tours include the Old Medical School at Teviot Place and around George Square. Teaching in the early years frequently takes place in these areas.
