Open and Applicant Days
Applicant Days, on the other hand, happen later in the application process. They are more focused events with specific timetables tailored to the specific course that your son or daughter have applied to. They generally include more in-depth course talks than those offered at the Open Day, with many including a practical workshop and, where appropriate, a specialist facilities tour. Applicant Days still give you the chance to see our accommodation and to take a tour of the campus.
We don’t advertise Applicant Days to the general public. Instead, we directly invite Leeds Beckett applicants to those events. While an Open Day is about choosing a university, an Applicant Day is about preparing for university. Your son or daughter should really attend both.
No matter which university your son or daughter eventually go to, make sure they visit first. It’s their opportunity to make an informed decision about which course and university is right for them.
Please note that the University campuses remain closed until further notice.
We are working hard to keep our university community updated with the latest advice and information around coronavirus (Covid-19). We are sending regular communication to our students and colleagues and updating this site with information as it becomes available.
Please follow the government’s latest advice and check the NHS website if you think you may have symptoms. For more information on how the University is currently handling the Covid-19 pandemic, please visit our relevant pages.
Our Student events
For many students and their parents, going to university is a big and sometimes daunting step. Visiting Leeds Beckett for one of our campus events is one of the best ways to prepare for such a change. We typically run Open Days in September, October, November and July, and Applicant Days from February to April.
Undergraduate Open Days
Open Days are normally attended by students (and their parents) in year 12 or 13, lower 6th form, or first year of college, though we also get many younger students attending - it is never too early to start thinking about their future.
The whole university opens, giving them and yourselves the chance to talk to lecturers and current students about the courses they are interested in. We run a range of presentations throughout the day about the different subject areas, student finance, a parents’ talk, sports and active lifestyles and accommodation options. You also get the chance to visit some of our accommodation to discover where your son or daughter may be living and look around the campuses to get a feel for student life at Leeds Beckett University.
Our next Open Days will take place on the following dates:
- Saturday 3 October 2020
- Saturday 31 October 2020
- Saturday 21 November 2020
Bookings for those events are not yet open. However, you can use this form to fill in a couple of details and receive an email notification and a booking invitation once they are.
