A great way to find out what it’s really like to study and live in Bristol, is to come and visit us on one of our open days or walking tours, which run throughout the year.
Open days offer you the best opportunity to get a feel for the city and University. On the day you’ll get the chance to:
We are running three open days in 2013, but these are likely to be booked up quickly. You can find details of dates, how to book and what you can expect on the day from the open days page.Open days
If you’re not able to visit on one of our Open days, you could come along instead to one of our student-led walking tours. These are organised throughout the year and offer you an opportunity to look around the main campus, but you won’t get the chance to visit the academic departments and see their facilities.
Demand for these tours is also high and we are only able to offer places to prospective students and up to two guests. The tour does include some steps and hills and lasts up to two hours, so if you or anyone in your party has a disability or restricted mobility, please let us know in advance.
You’ll need to book in advance for the tours from the range of dates below:
Once we’ve received your booking, we’ll confirm details of where to go and how to find us by email. If your chosen dates are fully booked, keep checking this page as places do often become available due to cancellations.
Tours will be running throughout the summer, Monday to Friday at 11 am and 2 pm from Monday 8 July until Friday 6 September 2013, excluding Monday 26 and Tuesday 27 August for the bank holiday and University closure day. Booking for these tours will be available here from 8 May 2013.
UCAS conventions are a great way of finding out about a number of universities in one go. If you’re attending one, come and say hello – just look for the University of Bristol stand – we’d love to meet you and tell you what Bristol has to offer. UCAS conventions are held across the UK between March and July, and you’ll find details of the conventions we’re attending below.
Overseas students can meet and talk to staff from our International Office at exhibitions held in several countries between January and May.
For some courses you will need to attend an interview as part of the selection process, for others you’ll be invited to an Academic School visit day. We’ll send you details of these by email.
