Archaeology open days

Plan your day

There's so much to see at Nottingham and we want to help you make the most of your day.

We've suggested an itinerary to help you find out as much as possible about studying archaeology and being a student here.

Of course, it's your day and your opportunity to get your questions answered so make sure you see the things that are important to you. A full list of all activities is in the open day brochure.

Events in bold have fixed times and relate directly to your course. 

Download a map that shows the locations of all our buildings.

Free shuttle buses will be running to help you get around the campus.

On the open days, the lecturers took an interest in me, what I did, and what I was passionate about, and that filled me with confidence that Nottingham would be the place for me - and I was right!
