Here's what we have lined up for you, and don't forget you can join us with your parent, carer or friends - everyone is welcome.
Expect it to be jam-packed, fun and full-on. There's lots to do and see so find out more about how to prepare.
If that wasn’t enough, try to find out more about Dundee. The V&A Museum of Design is the crown in the £1 billion Waterfront development, the independent shops, pubs and restaurants in Dundee’s buzzy West End and blue flag Broughty Ferry beach (complete with resident dolphins!) on our doorstep.
So pop the date in your diary, and we look forward to 'seeing' you on 31 October!
Don’t worry if you’re thinking that could be anything from law to engineering and everything in between. For many people, Open Days are about narrowing down what you want to study. That’s why going to course sessions is valuable. If you find yourself nodding off, it’s not our lecturers, it’s more than likely just not the course for you. You’ll get a feel for what subject is right for you by speaking to our tutors and current students who have been there, done it and got the T-shirt.
We do ask you to choose a subject when you book a place for Open Day but you won’t be held to it on the day.
Yes, yes and yes to all three. It’s up to you. Lots of parents or carers are understandably interested and want to be involved. Lots of students attend with family or a friend and just as many come alone.
No, you don’t. Lots of people have just started Year 5 or 6 at school. Others are studying an HNC or HND and thinking of progressing to University. We also get younger school students and plenty of mature students too. It’s a good mix and everyone is welcome.
In this case, yes, but most of the content will be available online for you to look at afterwards.
No-one’s going to force you but we’ve been doing this long enough to know attending is a really good idea. If you’re not sure which subject area or which course to study, speaking to tutors and current students will help you narrow down your choices. And if you do know what you want to study then coming along gives you a chance to see whether or not Abertay is a good fit for you - whether you can picture yourself fitting in and what your inner voice is telling you.
We understand how strange this year has been for everyone, and that's why our 2020 open day is happening online.
If you want to find out about how we are handling the Coronavirus situation, there is a website section all about it.
We are finalising activities, which will be published here closer to the day.
Check the Undergraduate Virtual Open Day page as we'll keep it updated.
If you are new to Dundee, you are our top priority for getting a room in our University accommodation for your first year of study. We need to know you’ll definitely be studying with us before we offer you a place so if you make Abertay your ‘firm’ you can apply.
Check out our Accommodation section to give yourself a flavour of it.
