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 2016 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 have a look at our monthly Campus Tour dates or contact our Student Recruitment Team.

Portfolio preparation sessions take a step-by-step look at preparing an arts, design or media portfolio. All visitors receive a guide to take away with them to help perfect their portfolio. The portfolio is an essential part of the NUA admissions process and so we really encourage people considering applying to NUA to attend one of these sessions.

Please book a place onto our Open Day using our Online Open Day Booking Form. After you submit the form you will receive an automated confirmation of your booking, followed by further information about the event closer to the date. If you have not received a confirmation email after booking, please email studentrecruitment@nua.ac.uk.

For 2016/2017, our Undergraduate Open Days will be open at 9.00am and close at 4.30pm. Course talks will run once per day with general talks repeated throughout.

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. Guided tours will take place once a month and they will show you around our creative campus, world-class facilities and specialist studios. All you need to do is complete our online booking form and select the date that you like to attend.
