History of Art 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 history of art 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.

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!
