Choosing where to study for your postgraduate degree requires a commitment in terms of both time and money. We realise the importance of not only studying a subject you are passionate about but also completing a course or research that will give you a head start in your future employment. That's why we encourage you to come and visit us.

We run four open days a year at the Cranfield campus that are packed with opportunities for you to see our great range of facilities, both for study and leisure. It's a chance to meet staff and current students, and get a feel for the atmosphere here at Cranfield.

Our accommodation and admissions teams will also be on hand to guide you through the application process from start to finish. You will be able to enjoy campus tours as well as exploring the learning spaces and technical facilities that you will be using. 

Please feel free to bring along those who will be helping you to make the decision about where to study.

For more information, please see our Open Day FAQs.

This event covers all courses and research opportunities based on the Cranfield campus, however, course representatives from Cranfield Defence and Security will be available during the day to discuss any queries you may have regarding our defence and security courses.

We regret that no young children are able to attend this event.
