What's On

Join our Undergraduate Open Day and discover what student life is like at a world top 100 University set on our beautiful campus in south-west Scotland.

Our Open Day is on Thursday 21 September, between 12:00pm and 5:00pm.

You will have the opportunity to visit subject and service stands and attend talk sessions throughout the event. 

Stands give you the chance to chat to our staff and students and to ask any questions you have about life at UofG. 

Talk sessions give you the chance to experience what a university lecture looks and feels like whilst gathering valuable information on a subject or service area. 

To achieve the most well rounded and valuable experience on the day, we would encourage you to attend and visit both talk sessions and stands during your time on-campus

Please note all times are in UK time and are subject to change.
