Virtual Open Day - your schedule

Saturday 19 June | 10:00 - 16:10

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

We start with a Welcome Talk at 10:00 to give you an overview of the event and how to get the most from it, after which there are live Q&A sessions with academic staff and student ambassadors throughout the day.

Entering a presentation talk is similar to stepping into a lecture theatre. If you're early, there may be a talk already taking place, so don't be surprised by this. If you're unsure whether you are in the right place, just ask in the comments box and one of our hosts will let you know.

Our schedule includes presenters being on-campus, whilst you continue to access the presentations from home. We wish to reassure you that this being done within Government guidelines.

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