Open Days

We’d love to meet you

At each of our Open Day events, you will get the chance to speak to staff and current students, tour our facilities and find out about the services and support available at NUA. A schedule will be sent to you prior to the event and published under the Downloads section.

To find out more about our creative community, visit our world-class facilities, meet course leaders and current students book a place on an Open Day. Bookings for 2017 dates will be open two months before the Open Day. If you are unable to make any of the below dates but would like to arrange a visit, please contact our Student Recruitment Team.

Campus tours

We know how important it is to get a feel for the campus you are considering going to. The best opportunity to find out about our creative community is to come along to an Open Day, where you can meet our academics and learn about courses in much more depth. However, if you are unable to attend, then the next best thing is to experience life at NUA through a student’s perspective. Student Ambassador guided tours will take place once a month and they will show you around our creative campus, world-class facilities and specialist studios.
