Open Days

Open days are one of the most crucial and useful tools that you have in deciding firstly whether or not higher education is for you and secondly which courses or institutions interest you the most.

If you are unsure as to whether or not a degree is right for you, booking yourself on an open day will give you the chance to meet academics, see facilities and often speak to current students about their experiences and studies. You should ideally go to an open day prepared to question and interrogate everybody you meet, you’ll find that all UCFB staff working at an open day are happy to take questions from you and advise you on whether or not a degree will help you with your ambitions.

Regular open days at both our Wembley Stadium and Etihad Stadium campuses give you a first-hand look at what it’s like to be a student at UCFB. The events are a chance to speak to UCFB staff, students and academics, to find out more about the degree programmes you are interested in and see for yourself the world-class facilities on offer. As well as this, depending on the time of year, you will also get the chance to tour either of the iconic stadiums.
