FAQs - Your Open Day Questions Answered

A university open day is your chance to explore the campus and ask any questions you have either before making your final decision to apply or to experience it in-person after applying. Northumbria University Undergraduate Open Days are a fantastic opportunity to speak to course leaders and student reps as well as experiencing the educational facilities and social spaces on offer.

Booking onto a Northumbria University Open Day is as simple as filling out a contact form and selecting the day or event you want to attend (whether in-person or virtual).

A chance to learn more about Northumbria University, student life and the support available remotely, register for a virtual event to discover everything you need to know about finance, accommodation, and the Northumbria community from the comfort of your own home.

Yes, in fact, we encourage it. We know how big the decision on where to attend university is and want everyone to feel that they have all the facts up front. This starts from providing you with all the parent or guardian information you need on our Undergraduate Open Days. Our team is on-hand to offer answers to questions from both prospective students as well as parents or guardians that accompany them on the day.   

You can find all the information you’ll need on travel, parking and public transport in our Getting Here on Open Day guide.

Open Days at Northumbria typically run from 9am to 3pm, giving you plenty of time to look around and take in the campus. Please be sure to double check times and dates before attending as some event timings may vary slightly. 

Northumbria University’s Undergraduate Open Days offer a lot to see and do. With all the options available, it’s possible to miss out on important information if you get caught up in everything that’s going on. Here are our tips for a comprehensive Open Day checklist.

  • Do Your Research: Figure out what you want to find out on the open day and which tours, talks or activities you want to attend. It’s also always best to plan any travel with plenty of notice, both to save money, and to ensure you know exactly where you’re going.
  • Subject Talks and Facility Tours: The best way to find out if a course is right for you is to attend a subject talk and tour the facilities. This will give you an opportunity to ask lots of questions about your chosen subject and what your learning experience will be like day to day. Take a virtual tour beforehand to see what’s on offer.
  • Campus Tours: Having a university rep show you around the campus is a great way to not only get your bearings, but also to ask current students questions about what it’s really like to live and learn at Northumbria University.
  • Financial Support and Wellbeing: Aside from the more course-specific presentations there will also be ‘general information’ talks available covering everything from accommodation to finance and support services. Make sure to plan in time for these as they’ll help you gain a wider understanding of what the university can offer you beyond the educational benefits. Visit our student support page for more information.
  • Student Residences and Accommodation: Northumbria University offers tours of our accommodation options as part of our Open Days and would highly recommend that add one to your itinerary. Members of the accommodation team will also be on-hand in the Main Exhibition to tell you more about our options but it’s always best to see first-hand.
  • Clubs and Societies: An Open Day is a great opportunity to learn what extra-curricular activities you’d like to get involved with. Whether you’re into sports, gaming or politics there’s a society (or societies) for you. Want to find out more? Our SU societies page showcases all the available options.
  • Explore the Area: If you’ll be living away from home, it’s crucial that you spend some time taking in the city and surrounding areas. While you’ll be spending plenty of time on campus, a lot of your university experience will be spent enjoying everything Newcastle has to offer. Looking for a preview?
