Making the most of your open day or event

Here’s how to make the most of your NTU open day.

Coronavirus: important event updates

Nothing beats seeing us in person, but that may not be possible at this unusual time. You can still book onto any upcoming NTU open day to register your interest in visiting us and we’ll keep you updated with more information on when you can come and see us, or to make alternative arrangements.

We're hosting a virtual open day on Friday 26 June 2020 – get to know your subject in more detail, take a closer look at our range of accommodation, and tour our campuses and facilities – all from the comfort of your own home. You'll have the opportunity to chat online with our inspiring staff and current students.

Visit our dedicated page on how the NTU community is responding to Coronavirus for the latest information.

If you have any questions, call us on +44 (0)115 848 4200 or complete our enquiry form to get in touch.

Plan your open day

  • Getting here

    We have three campuses – based in and around Nottingham – and you’ll be visiting the campus where your course of interest is taught, so make sure you go to the right one! Our Getting to NTU page has information on how to find us.

  • Arrival

    You can check-in at any point during the day. If you have an express check-in ticket, there’s no need to queue – just drop it off at our Information Point when you get here.

    If you need any help during the day, ask a member of staff or one of our Student Ambassadors in the pink tops – they’ll also point you in the direction of a free drink when you arrive.

  • Your open day planner

    Make sure you’ve got a copy of our open day planner. It contains a list of the talks, tours and viewings available on the day, as well as a map. Use the timetable to plan which general and subject-specific talks you’d like to attend. We recommend that you prioritise your day around your subject talk.

    If you miss a talk, or you’re interested in more than one subject, speak to our academic staff. You’ll find them at subject stands.

  • Eating

    You’ll find lunch and drink options available on campus. If you have time, heading into Nottingham is a great way to get to know the city and to sample a wide range of restaurants, cafés and bars.

  • Staying over?

    If you’re planning to spend the night in Nottingham, you’ll find information on places to stay at Visit Nottinghamshire.
