Open days, events and visits
Edinburgh. Extraordinary futures await.

Open Days

Our Open Days are a great opportunity to find out about studying with us from the people who know it best: our staff and students.

Our next Open Days

Our next undergraduate Open Days will take place at the University on:

  • Friday 16 June 2023
  • Saturday 7 October 2023
  • Saturday 28 October 2023

Please note that the programme of activities may vary between Open Days.

Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) are participating in these central University Open Days, but will also hold an additional Open Day on Monday 5 June 2023 to coincide with the ECA Graduate Show. This is to make the most of the time of year where student work, buildings and facilities can be seen at their best. We've provided an overview of ECA involvement on each date, so you can decide which event is best for you to attend.


A booking is required for our Open Days in 2023. Booking is now open for our University-wide Open Day on 16 June, and the ECA Open Day on 5 June.

We recommend that you do not make travel arrangements or book transport until your place at the event has been confirmed.
