Open Days and visits for undergraduate study

Experience what it's like to study in one of the most beautiful university cities in the UK.

Virtual open days

Our next virtual open events will take place in September. Register now and we’ll keep you up to date with the latest Open Day information and news.

When the event is on

While you can browse our virtual open day content year-round, when the event is running, you'll get the chance to:

  • live chat with academic staff and current students
  • watch live webinars and ask questions.

Visit our virtual Open Day pages to learn more about us before our next event.

Before the Open Day, it might be helpful to order or download a copy of our prospectus.

Campus tours

Watch a tour of the Cathays Park Campus.

We are delighted to announce that we will be offering external tours of our Cathays Park Campus over the coming months to give you a flavour of what we can offer.

Virtual talks

We have a range of virtual talks available for Year 12 and Year 13 students, covering all the important things you need to think about if you intend to start university in September 2021 or September 2022.

Fairs and conventions

If you are unable to attend our virtual open days, there will still be opportunities to talk to us at virtual fairs and conventions.

Self-guided campus tour

Although we’re not running physical Open Days at the moment, you can use our self-guided campus tour to help you explore our Cathays Park campus, which is located just a few minutes' walk from Cardiff's city centre.

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