Open Days

Think York St John University could be The One for you? Come and meet us at an Open Day and find out why students love our friendly, welcoming community.

An Open Day is an opportunity to see what York St John University can offer you. You will be able to get a taste of university life and get a feel of what life on campus is like.

Because of COVID19 our first open day of the year on Monday 29 June will be a Virtual Open Day.

We hope to run Open Days on campus, as normal from August but this will be dependent on government advice. If you sign up to an Open Day we will keep you informed of any changes.

Open Days 2020: 

- Monday 29 June - Virtual Open Day

- Saturday 15 August

- Saturday 17 October

- Saturday 21 November

Book on an Open Day

What you need to know:

On an Open Day you will get to meet academic representatives from across our Schools as well as staff from Accommodation, Admissions, Careers, Student Finance, Student Support, Mature Learners, Study Abroad and the Students' Union.

You can attend sessions covering everything from academics subjects to sports clubs. You can talk to current students, find out about student life and opportunities, take a tour of the campus and learn about funding and the application process. There are tailored events for mature students and those needing support with their application.

We will send you a programme before your Open Day. This gives you the chance to choose which sessions you want to attend and plan your travel arrangements if the event is being held on campus.

We are here to help answer your questions, big or small. If you need more information please email us at 

Virtual Open Days

Our Virtual Open Days will offer you everything that you would get if you came to campus apart from the experience of actually being here.

Sessions will run from 11:00am to 2:00pm. You will be sent a programme before the event with exact timings.

We have created virtual tours of our campus and accommodation for you and there will be lots of information, videos and presentations available on the day. You will have the chance to chat to students, to the people who will teach you and to our support staff – all from the comfort of your own home!

If you cannot make it to one of our events on campus our Virtual Open Day is a great alternative.

Open Days on campus

Open Days on campus usually run from 9:30am to 4:00pm. You will be sent a programme before the event with exact timings.

You are welcome to bring family or friends to our Open Days. If individual sessions are oversubscribed we will prioritise making sure students have access to them.

If you need directions or general information about the day, or just want to know what it's like to study here, speak to one of our Student Ambassadors, who will be around campus all day.

The small campus lends itself to maintaining a close community who are all proud to be York St John students. It is a place where anyone can make friends and everyone knows almost everyone.
