Postgraduate open afternoons

We have a range of open afternoons for postgraduate taught study in the spring. These events are the perfect opportunity for you to meet staff and students, learn more about your programme of interest and see our beautiful campus.

The open afternoons for 2017 have now taken place. Details of any further dates will be available here once confirmed.

The Postgraduate Recruitment team will be attending the next undergraduate open day on Saturday 9 September 2017. The team will be available to tell you more about postgraduate study at Bristol throughout the day at the open day exhibition.

Covered the course content well and answered all of my questions.
