June open days - Coronavirus (COVID-19) update

It is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to revise our undergraduate open days scheduled for the 26 and 27 June 2020 and move to virtual events instead.

We very much hope that the situation in the UK will have improved enormously by June. Even if this is the case however, our open days attract many thousands of visitors to the campus and our top priority will always be the health and safety of our students, staff and visitors. By moving these events online, we can lower the probability of spreading COVID-19 and protect ourselves and those around us, particularly those at high risk.

Our open days hold a special place in the hearts of our students and staff who go to great lengths to introduce our visitors to all of the wonderful things that make Loughborough University so unique. Whilst we are saddened by this decision, we’re looking forward to being able to show you our beautiful campus and fantastic facilities at a series of virtual open days instead.

Virtual open days, 24-27 June 2020

Our virtual open days will take place between the 24 - 27 June 2020. We're currently working hard behind the scenes to recreate the spirit of a real-life Loughborough open day so you'll be able see for yourself what makes Loughborough University such a special place to be. You’ll get a warm welcome from our Vice Chancellor, before touring the campus and having a look around some of our halls of accommodation. You’ll also get the chance to chat live to academics from your chosen subject area, as well as student ambassadors and staff from a broad range of student support services.

As our open days are so popular, we have spread our subject areas out over a number of days to ensure everyone gets the best possible open day experience online. 

  • Wednesday 24 June – Sport, Exercise and Health Sciences (including Human Biology and Biosciences)
  • Thursday 25 June – Engineering and Science
  • Friday 26 June – Social Sciences, Design and Creative Arts
  • Saturday 27 June – Business and Economics

Existing bookings for the June open days will be automatically transferred to the virtual event for the subject area selected at the time of booking. If you have already booked to attend a June open day, look out for more information and reminders from us over the next few weeks.
