Everyone you meet at the open day will be more than happy to help, no matter how small your question is (or even if you think it's a silly question).

What if you can't attend a university open day?

Not everyone will be able to attend one of the open days on offer at University of Portsmouth, so there's plenty of other ways to find the information you need before making your decision. While everyone is now moving away from virtual open days, there's plenty of information online. On the University of Portsmouth website, you'll find answers to a lot of your questions including details about the campus, accommodation and student life. The email addresses for all the different departments are also available online if you need to ask any specific questions. And of course, open days aren't the only chance to visit the campus. If you're made an offer, you'll have the chance to join an applicant day, also called an offer holder day or a taster day. These days are designed to be more closely tailored to the course you've applied to, as well as featuring the same campus tours and accommodation tours you find on an open day.
