What to expect

The Open Day is your chance to discover more about studying here and get a feel for student life. With a wealth of talks, exhibitions and tours to choose from, you can tailor the day to suit your interests.

Open Day highlights

Our academics, who are leaders in their disciplines, will be on hand to talk about our flexible degree programmes. See some of our cutting-edge facilities and resources, from major historical archives to the very latest research technology, and find out how we can help you prepare for a successful future through initiatives such as our unique Graduate Passport scheme, internships and industry placements.

You can also explore our campuses to see the lively social scene and superb leisure facilities our students enjoy. There will be plenty of opportunities to talk to current students about the university experience and learn about the support we can offer on everyday matters, from managing your money to finding somewhere to live.

If you graduated from the University, please come along and visit the Alumni team at their stand for a warm welcome and a coffee.

By the end of the day you'll have a feel for what it's like to live and study at Southampton, along with a wealth of inside information from our students and staff.

If you are interested in Fine Art, Fashion and Textile Design, Graphic Arts or Fashion Marketing, we suggest you visit an Open Day at Winchester School of Art. Find out more about WSA Open Days.
