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:

Guided tours will be taking place during the day and we encourage you to book a place in advance, we will email you when booking opens. Please make sure you have checked the Open Day programme before you book an accommodation tour, so you can avoid any potential clashes with other activities you may want to take part in. Open Day programmes will be made available on the week of your Open Day and will be emailed to you.

We guarantee all our first year students a place in our halls, if you’d like to know more about living in High Wycombe

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, please let us know by phone on 0330 123 2023 or email us. We’ll be able to book you on to our next event if you’re still interested.

If you’ve booked a tour and can no longer make it, please cancel so we can re-allocate your spot.

We understand you may not be able to stick around for the whole day (10am-4pm) 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.

Our High Wycombe Campus offers several options during Open Day. You can take advantage of the free refreshments or take a seat in Beats and enjoy a light bite. 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.

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.

Please see the Open Day programme for maps and alternative travel options. You may also find our visiting us section helpful, bucks.ac.uk/travelinformation.

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. This will be signposted once you arrive 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.

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 for the day, remembering to leave yourself enough time to just relax and soak up the atmosphere on campus.

If you can, 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 your visit, we’d suggest taking a wander around town or the nearby park 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?
