During our open days you can talk to course tutors and students and find out why studying at SRUC is such a unique experience that will give you the skills and knowledge to go out and make a real difference to the world. Some of our events are online, and some are on-campus, full details are given below.

We offer virtual online events through Microsoft Teams – you can see us, but we can’t see you. You can ask us questions via the chat function, and if you miss the event live, we will send you a link to the recording. You can also take a look around our Virtual Student Experience to see the facilities and hear directly from students and staff. In-person events are an opportunity to see the campus first-hand. We are currently still limiting numbers at on-campus events, and request that you have a negative lateral flow test before visiting.

Our intention is to be as inclusive as possible. We will make reasonable adjustments to support attendance at open days and provide access to open day materials after an event, including the use of captioning and BSL translation. If there is an adjustment that would improve your experience of an Open Day event or related materials please contact us on You can find out more about how we're making our digital content accessible on our Accessibility page.
