What to expect at the Open Days

The Open Days will consist of an exciting virtual exhibition, including:

Inspiring presentations introducing all of our subject areas, and many sample mini-lectures, available to watch on demand when it suits you!

Dedicated one-to-one live chats with academic staff and current students, as well as expert staff to speak to about admissions, accommodation, funding, and all aspects of student life - a great opportunity to get your questions answered!

Admissions advice - whether you want to know if you’ll meet our entry requirements, how the application process works, or would like to speak about your circumstances, our expert admissions teams are happy to help in confidential chats.

An insight into life in Edinburgh with our virtual tour of the University - the next best thing to being able to visit in person! Our staff and students will also be happy to chat to you about living in our beautiful city.

Event timings

Representatives from all subject areas across the University (with the exception of Veterinary Medicine) will be available to chat to between 11:00 - 13:00 GMT, and 14:00 - 16:00 GMT, with many of them online to answer your questions at all times during the event.

Throughout the events from 10:00 until 16:00 GMT you can speak to staff about admissions, accommodation, funding, fees and scholarships, careers, sport, student life, study abroad, support for international students.

Presentations, sample lectures, videos and resources will also be available outside of the hours that the Open Day is live, so you can check them out before you join the event, or revisit them afterwards.
