University of Huddersfield Open Days

Visiting an Open Day is a great way to find out all about university life and see if Huddersfield is the place for you. You’ll get to meet the lecturers, take a look around the campus and the facilities, try some of the tasty food and activities in Student Central as well as getting the chance to speak to current students.

Although you’ll find lots of information about the University of Huddersfield on our website, there is nothing quite like a visit to the campus to get a feel for what studying with us is really like. It’s a great chance to look at the facilities, talk to staff and current students from the course you are interested in and find out about those key things that matter to you.
