Open days, events and visits

Open Days

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 the Edinburgh experience.

Undergraduate Open Days in 2020

Here at the University of Edinburgh our priority is the health and wellbeing of our students, staff, and visitors.

Recognising the uncertainty about safely hosting large-scale events in the coming months in line with public health guidance, we have decided to replace our 2020 on-campus open days with online events. Therefore, our on-campus undergraduate open days previously scheduled for 26 September and 10 October 2020 will not be taking place.

We are currently working on a programme of online events that will help you get to know the University better, and information about our autumn events will be available on this webpage later in the summer. If you would like us to keep you up-to-date with news about future events, online activities and resources, please join our mailing list.

In the meantime, you can attend our regular online information sessions which provide a short introduction to the University of Edinburgh and the opportunity to ask questions.
