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

  • Saturday 26 September
  • Saturday 10 October

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

Recognising the rapidly evolving impact of Covid-19, we have taken the difficult decision to cancel the Undergraduate Open Day scheduled for 15 June this year.

The two undergraduate Open Days scheduled for 26 September and 10 October 2020 are currently still planned to go ahead, and this webpage will be updated with the latest guidance. We are also working to develop an online alternative for prospective students thinking about starting University in 2021.

If you would like us to keep you up-to-date with news about online activities and resources, and future on campus events, please join our mailing list.

Please consult ourĀ Covid-19 webpages, which we are updating regularly, for detailed advice and support.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) updates

We are sorry we will not be able to welcome you to campus in June, but look forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh at a future time.
