Plan your Visit

Bucks Open Days are a great way to experience what studying with us may feel like.

As part of the registration process for our open days, you’ll be able to select which presentations and activities you’d like to attend during the event. You can view your selections and make amendments to your booking online using the booking reference found on your event confirmation email. Please be aware that the open day schedule is subject to minor amends up until the day of the event, and may differ slightly from the sessions selected when booking. We’ll provide you with a copy of the event timetable when you arrive.

Below you will find a schedule of the talks and presentations running on the day. You can also have a look at our list of Subjects and Courses.

Here are a few other tips on how to get the most out of your day:

Guided accommodation tours will be taking place during the open day. Please reserve your place on the tour at the accommodation stand.

Please make sure you have checked the Open Day schedule before you book an accommodation tour, so you can avoid any potential clashes with other activities you may want to take part in. More information can be found on the accommodation tours booking page.

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, and you can even send them to look at one facility whilst you are checking out another.

If you’ve booked but can no longer make it, you can cancel or amend your booking online. You’ll need your booking reference in order to do this, which can be found on your event confirmation email.

We understand you may not be able to stick around for the whole event so if you can only make it for a session here and a tour there, there’s no need to worry, but please let us know if you need to cancel anything.

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’ll be providing free refreshments during the event, and our town centre location means we’re surrounded by places to eat offering a bit more if you’re really hungry.

Our Undergraduate Open Days are held at our High Wycombe Campus. If you’re taking the train, we’re a short walk through town.

Parking on campus is not usually available for students or guests, however we do open our car parks during our open days. This will be available on a first-come-first-served basis. You can use Gates A, C and D and will not require a parking permit for your visit.

If our campus car parks are full, there is plenty of alternative parking available locally - we advise guests to park at either the Eden Shopping Centre or at The Wycombe Swan Theatre. Both of these car parks are within five minutes walking distance to the campus. There is also a park and ride service that runs locally, with a stop right outside campus.

Once you’ve registered for our open day you will be sent a unique barcode by email. You’ll need to present this (either electronically or printed) at the Welcome Desk when you arrive. Once we’ve signed you in for the event, a member of our events team will let you know what to do next.

We’ve got course talks, campus tours and accommodation tours lined up, along with advice from Student Services on things like finance. There’s a lot going on so we recommend making a list of priorities.

During your visit, try and get acquainted with some of the places you could be spending the next three years of your life. Check out the library, the gym and our Students’ Union, and if you have time after, we’d suggest taking a wander around town to get a proper feel for our local community.

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?
