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 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.
