Open days and afternoons
The best way to find out what postgraduate study at Bristol is really like, is by attending our open day. Our next Postgraduate open day is on Wednesday 20 November from 1 pm to 5.30 pm. Book your place today and join us to find out more about postgraduate life at Bristol.
On the day, you'll get the chance to speak to current staff and students about our postgraduate taught and postgraduate research programmes, see our fantastic facilities and hear about our outstanding range of student support. Please book your place to attend.
We want to help facilitate your travel to our Open Day, as we recognise that this is an investment in your future. We’ve therefore arranged some great discounts for you with Great West Rail, First Bus and local hotels and you can find out more about getting here on our Maps and Travel page.
Parking around the campus is limited and traffic in Bristol can be slow. We would encourage the use of public transport, but if you do need to drive, the closest multi-storey car parks are Trenchard Street (15 minutes’ walk to the Wills Memorial building) or West End (5 minutes’ walk to the Wills Memorial building). Bristol also has a park and ride scheme, which you can use if you’d like to park outside the city centre.
If you have any access requirements that you didn’t disclose when you booked, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know how we can support you during your visit.
On the day, we’ll be at Temple Meads station offering free bus travel to the campus for attendees – just look out for one of our team in a University of Bristol jacket when you exit the station and let them know you’re heading to the Postgraduate Open Day. If you choose to walk from Temple Meads to the Wills Memorial Building, this will take approximately 35 minutes.
Bristol bus and coach station is approximately a 15-minute walk from Wills Memorial Building, or you can take a number 8 or 9 from Rupert Street (please note the Rupert Street bus stop will not be staffed so we are unable to offer free bus travel from this location).
