Our Open Days are designed to enable you to experience first-hand what it is like to study with us. During the event you can attend subject area talks, take a tour of our campus and meet with our friendly teams of staff and students.

We are situated in the heart of central London; just 5 minutes away from Edgware Road Underground Station and 10 mins from Oxford Street. You can also reach us on London Buses, numbers 6, 16, 18, 98, 332, 414 and by rail at both Paddington and Marylebone Rail Stations, which are only a short walk away.

Doors will open and registration will begin at 09.45. If you are early and arrive before this time, you can grab a coffee in our onsite Costa.  

Once you have registered at reception you will be ushered to a talk starting at 10am for half an hour. After this you can visit members of staff around our building or talk to our admissions team or tour the facilities on offer at this campus. Talks will take place every 30mins, the last session will begin at 1pm. The event ends at 2pm, last admittance will be at 1.30pm to allow attendees enough time to see members of staff.

FAQs
 
How do I register for an Open Day?

For all of our courses, please select the time that is right for you from the ticket options below. To attend our Open Day you MUST select one of these options.

Do I need to book a place?

Yes, we have a limited number of spaces available for each Open Day and so prospective students must pre-register. You can reserve extra tickets for additional visitors if you would like to bring a relative or friend however you will have to register their details. For health and safety reasons, we are not able to accommodate anyone who has not pre-registered.

Why can I only book one ticket for each session, I would like to book for my friends as well? 

Due to space limitations and Health & Safety we require each attendee to a session to book a place. If you want to bring friends or family into a session, they will need to book an individual place for themselves. You can also book a place for them with their email address. 

Do I need to book a place for my parent(s) or guardian(s)? 

There is no need to book an additional for any or guardians who will be accompanying you during the Open Day. However, due to limited space, they may not be able to attend our talks without a ticket. If they do wish to attend a talk, they can guarantee a place by booking a ticket. 

Do I need to bring written confirmation of my booking with me?

Yes, your registration will be recorded on our system; however, having a ticket will quicken the registration process - this can be printed or displayed on your smartphone or handheld device. 

I want to change/cancel the session I registered for? 

On EventBrite, use the logon details you entered when you registered for our Open Day. From there you will be able to amend your tickets and change your session or cancel your booking.
