On Thursday and Friday, October 15th and 16th 2015, UL holds its Open Days, aimed mainly at those interested in coming to study at the University in the next few years. Many of our students say it was their visit on Open Day that helped sway them in making UL their first choice. Come on your own or as part of a school group. We encourage everyone to visit and we look forward to welcoming you. It’s not just about the information, it’s also about the experience - Open Days are probably your best opportunity to get a real sense of UL and what we have to offer. Parents, teachers and guidance counsellors are all welcome.

At our open days, there will be:

  • Presentations on our degree courses
  • Departmental activities and demonstrations
  • Exhibitions
  • Campus tours

To look after you on the day, we have a team of student guides who aim to make your visit a pleasant one. All of our guides are current UL students and they will guide you to wherever you want to go, as you explore our campus and facilities. Academic staff will also be available to answer your questions and tell you about the exciting career opportunities arising from our courses. Full details and an Open Days brochure will be sent to schools nationally.
