Home / Student experience / Discover Sunderland blog / Preparing for university / Explore our Virtual Open Day

Open Days are a great way of exploring a university's campus, learning more about your chosen course and meeting your future teachers and classmates. Here at the University of Sunderland, we offer a range of different Open Days throughout the year, from undergraduate to postgraduate events, and even specialised subject events for applicants. What's more, if you can't make any of our scheduled Open Days, you can sign up for a campus tour and look around at a time more convenient for you.

But before you visit us on campus, why not get a feel for the University and what we offer by exploring our Virtual Experience
