Campus Tours

We’re always open!

Our Open Days are a great opportunity to visit our Preston campus and get a feel for what it’s really like to study here. However, if for any reason you’re unable to attend an Open Day, our Campus Tours Extra are an excellent way to see the campus, talk to academics and get advice from admissions, accommodation or our finance team. They run every Wednesday and we’re also able to accommodate other dates when booked in advance. Lastly, you can pop by and explore the Preston Campus at your leisure thanks to our Self-guided Campus Tours.

Open Day group bookings

We would be delighted to accommodate groups of students from schools and colleges at our Open Days. If you are a teacher or member of staff from a school or college and would like to make a group booking for our Open Day, please do get in touch with our our friendly team
