Open Days

Our next Open Days will take place on Friday 30 June 2023 and Saturday 1 July 2023 from 9:00 - 16:00.

Open Days are the perfect opportunity for your students to experience first hand what student life at Cardiff is like, speak to our academic and professional services staff, and get their questions answered. We warmly welcome all school groups who are able to visit us and provide a complementary lunch and refreshments for teachers who visit.

If you would like to attend our Open Day on Friday 30 June, please complete our school booking form.

If you have any questions about the event or would prefer to bring a school group on Saturday 1 July instead, please contact

We have attended open days in the past and intend to make it an annual event in the school calendar due to the success of our visits. The open days are extremely well organised and the schools liaison team are fantastic. Communication is timely and we always receive programmes beforehand, which our pupils love as it allows them to plan their day before attending.

Academic schools

Our academic schools often run on-campus events for both teachers and students at various key stages. Search our school and college engagement activities.

As well as University Open Days special information events are held by the School of Medicine. This allows prospective students, applicants, teachers and careers advisors to gain a more in-depth understanding of the school's courses and the facilities on offer.
