The Open Day is open from 9:00am until 3:30pm. The campus is open all day for you to explore but you don't have to stay all day; we've designed our programme so that you can pick the talks, tours and activities that you want to do.
We have an open campus so the majority of buildings will be open on the day. We often have some form of building work taking place on campus during the summer (where we are improving learning, social and living facilities) so some access may be restricted. We will also have a number of types of accommodation available to view.
These events are geared towards prospective undergraduate students. To find out more about postgraduate study at UEA, please see our website.
The Open Days are organised by the Recruitment Events Team. We are keep to hear from you if you have any questions regarding the event.
