What to expect at your event
Your event will begin with a welcome talk hosted in our Temple Hall lecture theatre. The talk will also be live streamed in rooms across campus to allow us to maintain 2 metre social distancing.
We will be hosting live subject talks across campus, led by our academic staff. Some subjects may also be live streamed across multiple rooms. If you are in a room with a live stream you will still be able to ask questions and engage with the member of staff.
The subject talks available at your event will depend on if you select a morning or afternoon session. You can see when talks will be available in the table below.
You can find out more about each course on our course pages.
You can also join a Campus Tour, meet with our Student Ambassadors and speak with staff from our student support services.
You'll be able to view a selection of our accommodation on one of our Accommodation Tours, although we are unable to guarantee entry into rooms.
