Timetabled Activities

Learning more about your preferred course is an important part of an Open Day. We recommend prioritising your timetabled subject talks and activities, then using free time to fit in other elements of your day, such as attending general talks, visiting our Information Zone, or taking a campus tour. Don’t forget you can also visit our subject stands in the Subject Hubs at any point throughout the day, where you can chat with our academic staff and students to learn more about the course and ask questions.

Explore the City

Lincoln is one of England’s great heritage cities, and as we’re located at the heart of it all on the picturesque Brayford Pool waterfront, it’s a great location from which to explore the city during an Open Day. You might want to visit the bustling Cornhill area just off the High Street, browse some of the boutique stores on the Strait, or stroll up Lincoln’s famous Steep Hill to the historic Bailgate area where you’ll find the castle and magnificent Lincoln Cathedral.
