Other Open Day dates

All subject areas taught at undergraduate level will be represented at our October Open Days, and will be offering an introductory talk and an information desk to speak one to one with staff. However, the timings of individual activities will be different from June and there may be some variation in additional sessions offered like taster lectures, tours and demos.

There will be no opportunity to visit our Medical School campus or Veterinary Medicine campus on 26 October, as this date falls after the early UCAS deadline for these subject areas.

Edinburgh College of Art will offer different activities depending on the date and you can check these on the ECA Open Day information webpage.
