Introducing Manchester

Watch our Open Day 2019 introductory talk from Saturday, 28 September 2019. 

Cancelling your place

If you can no longer attend just unsubscribe from the open day newsletter when you receive it - your booking details will then be removed. Your booking is valid for both open day dates so you don't need to amend your booking if you wish to switch dates. The programme is the same for both open days. 

Signing in on the day

You don't need to sign in on the day just head straight to your first session when you arrive on campus. If you need directions or guidance there will be three main information points and our student ambassadors (dressed in purple) will be on hand across campus to answer any questions. 

Talks, tours and activities

You don't need tickets for our talks as guests are seated on a first come, first served basis. We do advise arriving early where possible for any talks you are interested in attending.

Our open days are incredibly popular and this means that we may need to limit attendance at some talks, tours and activities to students only or students plus one guest, to ensure as many students as possible have the opportunity to attend sessions. We would like to thank you in advance for your understanding.

Our open day app

The open day schedule is now available so you can start planning your day. To access the programme all you need to do is download our open day app where you’ll be able to create a bespoke itinerary for your visit. By using the app you can select the subject talks you would like to attend, find out information about our accommodation and campus tours, and see what exciting activities we have planned for your visit to campus.

To download the app just search ‘UoM open days’ in the Google Play Store or App Store.
