Undergraduate open days

One of the best ways to get a feel for our campus is by coming to one of our open days. During the day you will be able to explore the campus and facilities, meet our current students and attend subject specific talks from the staff who will be teaching you.

In 2015 our undergraduate open days for prospective students will take place on Saturday 12 September and Saturday 10 October.

To register for an Open Day, please complete the online form.

Below is a list of activities to take place in Engineering and Computing at the September and October 2015 open days. For a full list of activities at the university, please download the Open Day Guide.

After you have applied

Once you have applied and your application has been reviewed by our admissions tutors, suitable applicants will be invited to an applicant day (usually between November and March), which we encourage you to attend.

Our applicant days are very different from the general university open days you may have attended. They will give you the opportunity to meet our students, academic staff and admissions staff, tour our facilities and find out more about your course, including a detailed look at the course contents, student activities, and teaching approaches. They also typically include an interview or group discussion, which gives you the chance to discuss your application in more detail, check that it’s the right course for you and your career plans, have your questions answered and find out more about studying at Leeds.

We appreciate that not all applicants are able to attend an applicant day and in such cases the offer decision will be made based on the information on the UCAS form.

Throughout the year we exhibit at a number of higher education UCAS fairs in the UK.
