Can't make an Open Day?

We also have Welcome Wednesdays.

Which campus?

Our University has main campuses in both Derby and Buxton (which are 30 miles apart). Course pages will tell you which campus your course is based at, so make sure you attend the right campus for your course.

Who is the Open Day for?

Undergraduate students

For people wanting to study undergraduate courses. At the Open Day you'll be able to attend subject talks, as well as a welcome talk, finance talk and student life talk. You'll be able to talk to academics, have a tour of the University and the halls of residence.

We'll also have support staff and our admissions team available for you to talk to.

Postgraduate, professional and part time students

For people wanting to study postgraduate, professional and part time courses. You'll receive a one to one consultation at the relevant College stand. Just register at the welcome desk at the main reception, and we'll tell you which stand you need to visit.

Getting the most out of our Open Days

Open Days are your chance to find out more about us, what we have to offer, and about Derby and Buxton in general.

Best things to do on an Open Day:

  1. Arrive around 9.30am so you can go to a welcome talk - these tell you a bit more about the University and Derby or Buxton.
  2. Go to the subject talk for your course. If it clashes with another talk don't worry - go to the talk which is most important and find out what you missed at the other talk from the relevant stand.
  3. If you're thinking of living away from home, book on a halls of residence tour as early as possible when you arrive, as these are very popular.
  4. Try and go on a campus tour to see the whole site and our facilities - they're led by students so you can also ask them all your questions.
  5. Talk to everyone and ask questions! Especially the student helpers - they're really friendly and will give you an honest insight into the University and life as a student here.

What you'll get before the Open Day

If you book on an Open Day at our Derby Campus, you'll receive our Open Day Guide about a week before the Open Day. This has the times of all the talks and tours.
