Open Days

We offer a variety of ways for you to get a taste of life as a Masters student at the Graduate School - including open days, virtual open days and private visits.

We hold regular events for all of our potential Masters students and they invariably prove to be an invaluable experience.

Masters Open Days

There is no better way to figure out if the Graduate School is the place for you than to pay us a visit. That way you can meet our academics, talk to current Masters students, find out about potential funding opportunities, visit some of our facilities, tour the campus, see our postgraduate accommodation, and enjoy demonstrations to get a flavour of the type of research we conduct.

Upcoming Events

Virtual Open Days

If you are interested in studying one of our Masters programmes but you are not able to visit the Graduate School, we also offer a series of virtual open days. These events take place online, on a dedicated website where you can ‘chat’ to Programme Directors, the Graduate School team and current students. In order to take part, all you need is a computer which is connected to the internet and a web browser. These events will take place at regular intervals throughout the year. To take part, please complete this form and further information will be sent to you.

Our upcoming Virtual Open Days dates are to be confirmed.

Private Visits

If you are interested in studying for a Masters by Research degree, you may prefer to arrange a private visit, so that you can discuss your research plans in greater detail. To do this, please email the Graduate School Office.

Postgraduate Open Days

You can also choose to attend one of Lancaster University’s general Postgraduate Open Days and events. Please remember to book your place.
