Plan your Visit

Bucks Open Days are a great way to experience what studying with us may feel like. We want you to enjoy your visit, so here are our tips on how to get the most out of your day:

Plenty of people attend Open Days on their own, but bringing someone else along for support is a great idea. It can be helpful to have a second opinion. Please note that children are welcome on our Open Days. However, we do not have any childcare facilities, and children are unfortunately not allowed in our simulation suites.

If you’ve booked but can no longer make it, please let us know by phone us on 0330 123 2023 or email us. We’ll be able to book you on to our next event if you’re still interested.

At our Nursing Open Days we pack a lot in, so would recommend you arrive promptly and stay for the whole event. We do understand if this is not possible and suggest you look at the programme in advance and plan your visit accordingly.

Yes, Bucks is a friendly and inclusive environment. If you require assistance, please contact us beforehand so we can enable your visit to run as smoothly as possible.

We will have tea and coffee available for all of our guests.

Our Nursing Open Days are held at our Uxbridge Campus. If you’re taking the tube, the Metropolitan or Piccadilly Lines both run to Uxbridge. The Campus is a short walk through town from the station. If you’re driving, there are three town centre car parks within a short walk of the campus, including The Cedars and The Grainges, and Intu Uxbridge car parks (please note that The Grainges car park closes at 8pm). Our Student Ambassadors will be near the campus, waiting to direct you.

More information can be found on our 'Visiting Us' section.

Please make your way to the Welcome Desk to let us know you’ve arrived, where our friendly team will sign you in and can help with any queries.

We’ve got course talks, simulation sessions and qualification clinics lined up, along with advice from Student Services on things like accommodation and finance. There’s a lot going on so we recommend making a list of priorities for the day, remembering to leave yourself enough time to just relax and soak up the atmosphere on campus.

The Open Day Programme will be available for download before the event. We’ll let you know by email when it’s ready to view. Programmes will also be available on the day so don’t panic if you leave yours at home or haven’t managed to print one off.

There are three town centre parks within a short walk of the campus, including the Cedars, the Grainges and the Intu Uxbridge car parks. Please note that both the Cedars and the Grainges car parks close at 8pm.

Our Open Day will provide you with the chance to speak with academic staff, current students, and staff from student services.

We suggest you have a good think about what you may want to ask, for example, what do you need to know about studying here, the application process or how student finance works?
