Open Day - your schedule

Saturday 1 October | 09:15 - 14:45

Our Open Day has a packed schedule of live events, designed to give you the information you need to make your decision and to give you a flavour of what it's like to study at the University of Bradford.

Most of our talks, tours and workshops will be running twice during the day - once in the morning and again in the afternoon. This allows you the flexibility to attend at a time that suits you, while ensuring you don't miss anything.

This schedule will be updated regularly to reflect any changes.

Check out what's in store below and start to plan your day.

Planned Rail Strikes

Rail strikes are planned for Saturday 1 October. We know this may cause difficulties for many who rely on trains to get around. 

If you would usually travel by train please consider the following suggestions: 
• Check your planned travel arrangements before setting off. The trainline has information on individual train operators that you may find useful https://www.thetrainline.com/trains/great-britain/industrial-action
• Consider alternative travel arrangements – can you travel by other means of transport such as a bus or carshare with a friend?
• Allow extra time to travel – due to the train strikes other services such as buses and coaches may be much busier. 

Parking

Parking is available on campus for the Open Day. The designated carpark is Shearbridge and the postcode is BD7 1PP. 

Can’t make it?

If you can’t make it to campus, our next opportunity to find out about Bradford is on Saturday 26 November for our Virtual Open Day.

Bookings open for this event shortly. Or alternatively, please contact oncampusevents@bradford.ac.uk to organise an individual campus visit.
