Visiting Opportunities

main content

Visiting a university is a great chance to explore the campus and find out more about student life. We offer a variety of opportunities throughout the year for prospective students and their families to visit.

Open Days

The University's 2016 Undergraduate Open Days will take place on:

Tuesday 6 September

Saturday 8 October

For further information on visiting the University of Strathclyde outside of Open Day please see our Visiting Opportunities

Visit Strathclyde

 

These visits take place throughout the year and include a brief overview of the university including information about our undergraduate courses, university facilities and student experience followed by a campus tour led by a current university student.  There will also be a chance to ask any questions to a member of the Education Liaison Team.  Unfortunately it is not possible to offer a visit to any specific department as part of this visit. 

If you are from the EU and would like further information on Entry Requirements from your country, please click here.  

Please note if you are holding an offer you will be invited to a departmental visit day. These offer subject specific information and are the key opportunity for offer holders to visit the University. Invites will be sent to offer holders in due course.

Self-Guided Tour

If you are unable to attend one of our scheduled visits you should feel free to visit and take a self-guided tour at a time that suits you. The University is open to the public and you are welcome to explore the campus at your leisure.  You can use the leaflet below as a guide and download our Campus Tour Podcast for an audio tour of the campus.  Listen to the commentary as you follow the route outlined in the leaflet to see and hear about the main features of the University of Strathclyde at your own leisure.
