PLAN YOUR DAY

Saturday 1 October 2022, 9.30am - 3pm

Thinking of joining us in 2023? An Undergraduate Open Day is your golden opportunity to find out everything there is to know about life at Queen's University. You'll learn all about our courses, the application process and chat to students and staff.

This year we are back on-campus, so not only will you be able to find out all the key information you need, you'll be able to see and experience for yourself what university life is really like.

We have created a campus map which you can pick up on the day, however if you would prefer to download the map now just click here.

Here are our tips for getting the most out of your day:

 

BE PREPARED


Remember to plan your journey and itinerary in advance and make sure you leave plenty of time to arrive before your first talk.

TALK TO OUR STUDENTS


Have an informal conversation with current students to learn about their student experience and their stories about student life.

TAKE A MOMENT


Take a moment to stop, catch your breath and take in your surroundings. Reflect on how you feel and think about whether you can picture yourself living here.

ENJOY YOURSELF


Make sure you plan time for food and drinks stops throughout the day and make use of any quiet spaces if you feel overwhelmed at any point.
