You can arrive at this event from 9.30am, but check the time of your first booked session and try to arrive at least 30 minutes before this to allow time for registration.
You can go on one of our tours before or after your booked sessions, so you may want to plan your arrival time to factor this in. Take a look around our accommodation, sports centre and library, or do a self-guided campus tour.
We recommend you allow three to four hours to make the most of your visit. This is how your day might look:
- Register at least 30 minutes before your first session at the registration point specified in your email. Bring your booking reminder email (that we'll send to you the day before) which contains your barcode.
- Attend your subject talk and other booked sessions.
- Take tours, visit subject desks and other drop-in sessions. You can book these on the day.
- Head into Brighton after your open to day to explore our colourful city. Tap on and tap off a Brighton and Hove Bus to the city centre for just £2 per journey. Show your programme at select restaurants for discounts throughout the day, more details to follow.

You’re welcome to bring guests with you on the day.
Some of our talks are very popular so, to ensure as many prospective students as possible can hear about their subject, we may ask guests not to attend the subject session.
Of course, if there is space, we will do our best to fit additional guests on the day.
