Open Day activities

What to expect at the June Open Days

Subject introduction sessions

These inspiring live sessions delivered by academic staff will introduce studying each of our subject areas at Edinburgh. Most sessions include the opportunity to ask questions.

Sessions will be recorded and uploaded to the event portal for all Open Day attendees to access, so don't worry if you can't attend everything you would like to or if one you are interested in is fully booked.

Subject area live chats

These dedicated one-to-one text chats with staff, and for some subject areas current students, are a great opportunity to get your questions about studying with us answered.

Admissions team live chats

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 one-to-one text chats. 

Student life and services live chats

Specialist staff will be available each day between 15:00 - 17:00 (BST) to speak to about accommodation, fees, funding and scholarships, careers and alumni, study abroad, sport and student life.

On-demand videos and resources

Our Open Day 'Virtual exhibition' contains lots of useful resources and information about every aspect of the University. This includes videos, entry requirements, useful web links, FAQs, and for some subject areas pre-recorded sample lectures. All live introduction session recordings will be available to all Open Days attendees.

Guided virtual visit and student panel

These live sessions provide an insight into life in Edinburgh with a tour of our 'Virtual Visit' and students sharing their experiences. Sessions will be recorded for all Open Day attendees to access.

Event timings

You will have access to the Open Days platform from 09:30 (BST) on Monday 21st June onwards, and be able to explore the on-demand resources for every area in the virtual exhibition at any time from that point.

Times and dates of the live introduction sessions and live chats vary by subject area and department, and are displayed below. All times are British Summer Time (BST).

Live introduction sessions require a specific booking, while the live chats can be attended by all.
