Open Days

We offer you the opportunity to visit us at one of our Masters open days. These take place at regular intervals throughout the year and a typical open day allows you to:

  • discuss LEC Masters degrees with members of academic staff
  • chat with some of our current Masters students
  • find out about potential funding opportunities
  • visit some of the facilities in LEC and witness some demonstrations to gain a flavour of the type of research we conduct
  • tour the University campus, including postgraduate accommodation

Applicants attending our open days find them a very valuable experience and we encourage you to attend.
