Prepare for your visit

Open Days are a great opportunity to find out about life at Leeds. Here are some top tips for getting the most out of your day.

For everyone's safety, our Open Day sessions have limited capacity and some are only accessible by pre-booking online.

Top tips

  • Keep your booking confirmation email handy. This contains your personalised booking summary which you'll be asked to show on arrival at talks and sessions. 
  • Check Course Search for entry requirements and to shortlist the courses you want to find out more about on the Open Day. 
  • Prepare any questions you might have. These might be about admissions requirements, module options or how to study abroad.
  • Think about how you will travel to the University. Parking is only available on campus on Open Days for Blue Badge holders, so allow time to get to your first activity. 

Attending your sessions

Your personal booking page contains details of all the activities you've booked, including locations and times. To help you to navigate campus, our Open Day guide will be available on the day, including maps and listings of general University activities. 

  • All our subject talks are available only by pre-booking. If you have not booked a subject talk, you can attend a subject drop-in to find out more information about the course you are interested in.
  • Most general University activities are available without pre-booking. This includes our Information Fair, accommodation viewings, library tours, Students’ Union tour and The Edge sports centre. 

Activities finish with enough time to get to your next session. Find out more about the types of activities happening on Open Day.

Visiting with friends and guests

Parents, guardians, family and friends are welcome to attend our Open Days, but due to capacity constraints, some sessions have a limit on the number of guests you can bring in with you.

Staying overnight

If you need to stay overnight, we recommend you book accommodation in advance. The Welcome to Yorkshire website gives lots of options for places to stay. Many city centre hotels are less than 15 minutes’ walk from campus.
