Who is our Undergraduate Open Day aimed at?
Our Undergraduate Open Day is intended for anyone interested in our undergraduate courses*, including students of all ages, parents, careers advisors, and teachers. Although we have no age restrictions we recommend that students attending are in Year 10 and upwards, due to the focus on the day.
