Open days

Want to know more about being a medical or medical pharmacology student at Cardiff? Come and find out for yourself.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year we held a Virtual Open Day for our undergraduates. Please visit our Virtual Open Day pages to find out more:

Medicine Taster Days

In addition to the University-wide open days, we hold several medicine-specific taster days each year.

These allows prospective students, parents, applicants, teachers and careers advisors to gain a more in-depth understanding of our medical courses and the teaching and facilities available.

You'll get a chance to:

  • meet staff
  • chat to current students and Cardiff-trained doctors
  • explore our facilities
  • try out your clinical skills under supervision.

2020 Medicine Taster Days

Due to concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have decided that it is in the best interests of our staff, students and attendees to cancel all upcoming events for prospective students. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment this may cause you. We are really proud of our staff, students and facilities and were looking forward to meeting you and showing you around.


Why not combine your medicine taster day with an overnight stay? Visit Cardiff has good range of accommodation to suit all budgets both centrally and on the outskirts of the city.

Appointments for international visitors

Although it is not usually possible to offer individual tours outside of our taster day dates, international visitors who can give us advance notice of their trip to Cardiff are very welcome to contact us to request a short appointment.
