Undergraduate Open Day

What happens at our Open Days

View the Open Day programme and plan your day to get the most from your visit.

Our undergraduate Open Days are a great opportunity to come and see the University for yourself, and find out about student life in Edinburgh from the people who know it best: our staff and students. You can also explore the campus, learn more about the range of degrees available and ask questions about admissions, accommodation and job prospects.

The Open Days take place across various campuses – Central area (George Square and Edinburgh College of Art), King’s Buildings, Pollock Halls (Accommodation), Edinburgh Royal Infirmary (Medicine), and Easter Bush (Veterinary Medicine), so check the programme in advance to see where you need to be.


Please note that we will not send programmes to you by email or post as they are given out on the day. A draft programme is available to view below. Please note that while we do our best not to, the draft programme may be subject to change.

Teaching Showcase

As part of our Open Days this year we have planned some sample lectures, to showcase our teaching and give you a taste of what studying might be like here at Edinburgh. These are run by academics from specific subject areas but are intended to be of general interest. Information about these lectures can also be found in the programme.
