The next Open Days are Saturday 7 October and Saturday 21 October 2017


Welcome to Canterbury!

Our staff and student volunteers will be around the campus throughout the day and are on hand to chat about Kent, answer any questions and help you find your way around.

We want you to feel at home - that's an important factor in choosing a university. Immerse yourself in campus life by taking a look at the academic facilities, accommodation, visiting the students' union and the Templeman Library.

Our Open Days are particularly focussed on those starting university for the first time, however if you are a postgraduate student, you are welcome to come along. Our Open Day FAQs may help to answer any questions you may have ahead of your visit, but please contact us if we can help further.

The next Open Days will be held on 7 and 21 October 2017. Booking will open approximately four weeks' before the events.

What's on?

Talks covering finance, the UCAS process, the students' union, accommodation and careers, as well as sample lectures and workshops delivered by our academic schools. You can also explore the campus and take a break between sessions in our cafés and coffee shops.

“The activities and talks were all well planned and useful, and really gave a good view of what life at the university would be like.” (Open Day visitor 2016)

Plan your day

We'll post you out a programme before the day so you can see what's on and what you'd like to do. We recommend seeing what academic talks you'd like to attend, and then planning your day around these. Make time to visit the accommodation - you'll want to look round where you may be living in your first year!

All academic schools and our professional service departments will have a stand in the Sports Centre, so you'll have time to pick up additional information and speak to staff throughout the day.
