Your open day programme
To help you plan your day in advance we will send you a copy of the programme electronically one week before the event.
A full printed version of the programme will also be available for you to collect from registration when you arrive at the open day.
The undergraduate open day runs from 9.00am until 4.30pm.
On arrival to the campus, please collect your goody bag and register your attendance with a member of the registration team in the Roland Levinsky building. The registration team will talk you through the programme for the day and answer any questions you may have. We strongly advise that you check the times of the talks and subject sessions that you are interested in, as some sessions are only run once.
To make sure that our applicants have the best possible experience of the University of Plymouth, we negotiate a number of travel and accommodation deals with Great Western Railway and local hotels.
The offer is a 20 per cent reduction in our Advance Purchase fares which are available on most GWR mid and long distance GWR routes to your local station. The same discount can be obtained for any other passengers that are booked at the same time, and the discount is offered on top of any Railcard discount that may be applied*.
Parking is available in the city centre close to campus, but traffic can become busy during events. There are various park and ride locations on the outskirts of the city that can be used as an alternative to the central car parks.
