Virtual Open Days

Our Virtual Open Days are a great opportunity to find out about student life in Edinburgh from the people who know it best: our staff and students.

Our next Open Days

We can’t wait to welcome you to our next Undergraduate Virtual Open Days, which will take place on:

Different subject areas will be represented on each date. Please check the Open Days programme page for descriptions, dates and times of activities running for each of our subject areas, admissions teams and services.

Covid-19 and Open Days

As Covid-19 travel restrictions in Scotland are gradually being lifted, we are looking forward to seeing more visitors returning to the city of Edinburgh. However, due to the large scale of our on-campus Open Days, this autumn we will again be running virtual Open Days in order to prioritise the health, safety and wellbeing of all students, staff and visitors.  While restrictions are in place, the University will also be prioritising learning and teaching activity on campus.
