College Open Days
Want to take a behind-the-scenes look at UCB and discover what it's like to study here?
Come and visit us on one of our College Open Days, where you can find out more about our courses, check out our facilities and speak to current students and staff. Register for an open day online and you'll get your own 'VIP Backstage Pass', giving you the chance to have a sneak peek around our campuses, access student demonstrations and more.
If you like what you see, you can also apply to join one of our courses while you're here.

Courses and presentations
We offer practical courses in the following subject areas:
Your VIP Backstage Pass
After you have registered online, your personal VIP Backstage Pass will be sent out in the post to you. This will tell you which site to report to on the day – either Summer Row or Richmond House (on Newhall Street). This information will also be detailed on your booking confirmation which you will receive via email.
Don’t worry if you don’t register beforehand, you can simply turn up on the day and collect a pass when you arrive.
Your VIP Backstage Pass gives you and your guests access to:
- A tour of our facilities
- A selection of complimentary refreshments
- Demonstrations by our students
- Subject-specific guest speaker presentations
- Advice and information on study support, transport costs, English/maths qualifications and careers
At the end of your visit you are welcome to keep your pass – and if you do choose to study with us, you can even bring it with you when you start!
