Undergraduate Open Days
Although you can find lots of information about the University of Huddersfield on our website, there is nothing quite like a visit to the campus to get a feel for what life at university is really like.
It's a great chance to look at the facilities, talk to staff and current students from the course you are interested in and find out about those key things that matter to both you and your parents such as finance, accommodation and student support. It is also the best way to find out why the University was awarded the Times Higher Education University of the Year award!

What happens on an Open Day?
It's your Open Day so make sure you enjoy yourself and ask lots of questions! Once you arrive on campus, you will be welcomed by staff and students who will let you know what is going on throughout the day. Whether it's a welcome talk with our Deputy Vice Chancellor, visits to subject area talks or just a wander around campus to get a feel for the place, you are free to go wherever you like. We have friendly student ambassadors across campus (look out for them in their bright orange t-shirts) who can point you in the right direction, offer you advice and guidance about a particular course or the nightlife in the town. Below is a sample of some of the things that take place on the day and you can download a programme for more detailed information.

We love welcoming prospective students to campus and it's always great to see so many people exploring what the University has to offer. If you can't make it on the day, or you remember something you wish you had asked, don't worry as there are loads of ways to get in touch.
One of the best ways to get involved, ask questions or simply find out what is going on throughout the day is to follow us on Twitter. We have an Open Day hashtag which we post up photos, events and activities taking place throughout the day as well as answering any questions you might have. To the left, you can see some of our favourite Tweets from the last couple of events!
We also post up information on our Facebook page or you can always get in touch via email at the address above.
Open Days are one of our favourite times of the year as we get to see lots of people enjoying themselves on campus and discovering Huddersfield, possibly for the first time. With so many prospective students, family and friends on campus, as well as our current students and staff, there is always a great buzz and a really nice atmosphere. Check out our image gallery and see for yourself.
International Students are welcome to attend our Open Days and there will be staff available to give you immigration and visa advice.
