Visit us

Get a feel for studying with us at our Open Days, information sessions, tours and offer holder days.

Student-led tours

Open Days

Our undergraduate Open Days are a great opportunity to come and see the University for yourself.

You can 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 what you can study and ask questions about admissions, accommodation and job prospects.

Everyone is welcome at our Open Days - prospective students, their families, teachers and careers advisers.

Our next undergraduate Open Day will be in June 2019.

For more information and booking details visit our Open Days pages. We recommend that you do not book travel until booking opens and your place at the Open Day has been confirmed.
