Opportunities to visit

Open Days

Our next Open Days will take place on Saturday 17 September and Saturday 22 October 2022. 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 are planning on bringing a group of your students to one of our Open Days, please complete the school booking form and our team will be in touch to help you plan the day.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss a group booking, please contact and we will be in touch.

University visits for schools

We have opportunities for school groups to visit our campus in spring and summer 2022.

Your students will gain a first-hand insight into life at one of Britain’s leading teaching and research universities and can benefit from:

  • presentations on the application process, student life, accommodation, studying in Cardiff and preparing for university
  • campus tours
  • the opportunity to put questions to our current staff and students

Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. If you would like to find out more and discuss dates please complete the request form and we will get back to you.

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

When circumstances allow, 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.
