What to expect from a virtual open day

What to expect from a virtual open day

In light of the current situation, we’re currently holding all our open days online, which is of course a different experience to a campus tour with face-to-face meetings.

So why is attending a virtual open day important?

How can you book your place?

And how are we making sure that you can learn as much about the University as you would during a regular face-to-face open day?

Find out below.


Why is a virtual open day important?

If you’re struggling to pick a course, choose which university you want to attend, or even whether you want to continue your studies, an open day at the University of Wolverhampton can help give you some clarity.

From the comfort of your home, you can:

  • learn about the courses you’re most interested in, and pose questions to academics who teach the subject
  • get impartial careers advice from our qualified advisors to discover the qualifications that will most benefit your future career
  • learn how to apply, how the process works, and the important application dates
  • find out how you can finance your studies, possible sources of extra funding, and how you’ll pay your fees if you become a student
  • put questions to the Student’s Union, accommodation, international office, careers, admissions, and Student Support and Wellbeing (SSW)


Booking your place

You can reserve your place at one of our virtual open days by booking online. You can secure your place at our next event by  

Once you have booked, you’ll receive a confirmation email containing a link that will give you access at the start time. We’ll also send you reminders and updates during the run-up to the event and on the day.


How does a virtual open day work?

When you click on your open day link, you’ll be taken through to a virtual room where you’ll hear from colleagues who run and teach the course. They’ll describe the kinds of topics the course includes, how they’ll be taught, and other helpful details such as the ways you’ll be tested and graded.

You’re also likely to hear from our Vice Chancellor, and see videos explaining more about the University of Wolverhampton experience and what makes it so special and rewarding.

You can take a virtual walk around the University’s lovely campus but you can explore it via our campus pages here or take a virtual tour here
