What’s the difference between a campus tour and an Open Day?

Campus tours are small scale events designed to give you the opportunity to view our general campus facilities. We suggest attending an Open Day at the first instance to find out more about our courses, facilities and various other social and support related opportunities.

Will I have the opportunity to find out about my course?

Where possible, we will try to give you an opportunity to chat to a lecturer about your course, but this is not guaranteed.

Who can book onto a campus tour?

These tours are for anyone wanting to come and view facilities before making an application. We still recommend that you attend an Open Day where possible and an Applicant Day or Interview/Audition day after making your application. The Applicant Days will begin from February.

These tours will only cover our Exton Park site. For specific tours of Creative Campus, Kingsway, Queen's Park or Wheeler, we would recommend attending one of the above events.

What time does the campus tour start and finish?

The start time of the campus tour depends on the allocated time slot you select. Once you have booked on to a campus tour you will receive a ticket via email. This will include confirmation of the date and time of your tour. You do not need to bring the ticket with you on the day. If you would like confirmation of your tour time, just get in touch by emailing

Where does the campus tour take place?

These tours will only be taking place on our Exton Park site.

Is car parking available?

Parking is available at all learning sites. 

What if I can't make a campus tour?

We understand that plans may change. If you can no longer attend the campus tour, we ask that you please let us know by email in advance so that we can cancel your booking for you and offer your tour slot to somebody else. Please include details of the date and time of the tour that you have booked when getting in touch.

What if I am running late?

If you are running late, please call 01244 512800 or email We will try our best to accommodate you, but this may not always be possible.  

How many guests can I bring?

We ask that you bring a maximum of two guests in order to minimise the number of visitors on our sites. You do not need to make a separate booking for your guest.   

Can I get help towards travel costs for the campus tour?

We offer a means-tested Travel Bursary to assist with travel costs for campus tours. For more details and to check whether you are eligible, see our Travel Bursary pages.

What if the course I am interested in is based at University Centre Reaseheath?

University Centre Reaseheath has its own opportunities to visit and find out more. You can find more details on their website.
