Visiting the University / Open days

The School of Economics, Finance and Management does not hold a University-wide open day for postgraduates, but there are other opportunities for you to visit and find out more about the university independently.

Self-guided audio walking tour

Follow our circular tour and find out about the University’s history and facilities. The complete tour takes about 90 minutes and includes several optional detours around parts of the city. The self-guided tour is also available as a downloadable iPhone app through iTunes

The walking tour commentary consists of a total of 14 podcasts, one for each stage of the tour, which you can also download from our website. There is a printable version of the tour if you do not have an MP3 Player or an iPod.

You might like to print out a campus map to help guide you around the Campus, and other useful maps (including bus services and walking directions to the campus) can be found at:

International Office campus tours

Campus tours for prospective international postgraduate students are led by international student ambassadors and run throughout the year. The tour will give you an idea of the layout and general facilities of the University.

Tours last for one hour. Please note that this is a walking tour and as some areas of the University precinct are quite hilly, comfortable shoes are recommended.
