Book online to receive an open day programme 2 weeks before the event. You won’t need to register when you arrive so you can head straight to wherever you are planning to go. You (and your parents) will be happy to know that you can park on campus.
Medicine is taught at the University Park Campus so that’s where you’ll want to be going on the open day. The Medical School will be closed for refurbishment on the September open days but you will be able to see a virtual tour of the facilities which include a library, lecture theatres and clinical skills laboratories. An hour long talk on applying for medicine at Nottingham will be held throughout the day. Although you won’t have to book in advance for this talk, you will still need to pick up a ticket on the day as it is very popular.
General presentations will be repeated several times a day and these will let you know everything about studying and living at Nottingham. There will also be two separate guided tours of the 330 acre University Park Campus. These will last for 45 minutes and are split into different zones so you can choose the one you want to go on according to the subject area that you’re interested in. The university is also offering a free city bus tour of Nottingham which will show you the main attractions of the place that you may end up living in.
You are free to visit any halls of residence on the open day. All will be open for viewing and there are a large variety of catered and self-catered for you to look at. Some of the accommodations are based off campus but a free shuttle bus can take you if you wish to go there.
The University of Nottingham also hold mini open days which are a normal open day on a smaller scale. The next ones will be in October. If you receive an offer to study a course at Nottingham, you will be invited to a UCAS visit day where you will be able to spend more time in your chosen department.
