Open Days and visits for undergraduate study

Experience what it's like to study and live in Cardiff, by exploring our campus and city and meeting our staff and students.

Open Days are the perfect opportunity for you to experience first-hand what it's like to study and live in Wales' capital city. You'll be able to find out more about your subject of interest at our subject-related talks and presentations, speak to our academic and professional services staff to get your questions answered, explore the campus and city, and take a look at our on-campus accommodation.

Our next Open Days will take place on Saturday 17 September and Saturday 22 October 2022. The events will run from 09:00 – 16:00 and offer a range of activities including subject-related sessions, campus tours and the chance to meet current staff and students.

The tour lasts approximately one hour, but you can also take several optional detours, depending on what you'd like to visit.
