Queen Mary holds two sets of university-wide Open Days throughout the year, one in October and two in June.
During the Open Day, the School of Engineering and Materials Science will have academic staff, admissions staff and current students on hand to answer your questions. Staff will be available to chat to you about the modules they teach, or the admissions process, and can help distinguish between the different programmes for you. Our students will be able to tell you about their year of Industrial Experience or about their research projects. You will also have the opportunity to see our laboratories and facilities.
On-Demand Subject Talks
This is an opportunity to learn more about our undergraduate subjects in the School of Engineering and Materials Science.
Our online open day subject talks were delivered live during the autumn of 2023 and are now available for you to watch in your own time.
Each talk was delivered by a leading academic and provides an introduction to their subject area. Please register to access the online subject talk page.
Tuesdays at 2pm, Thursdays at 11am and Fridays at 2pm*
If your visit to QMUL does not coincide with the next Open Day, you can take a campus tour. The UK Student Recruitment Office organises campus tours throughout the year. The tour normally lasts about one hour, and is intentionally restricted to small, informal groups so that everyone has the chance to ask questions. The campus tours are a great way of finding out about living and studying in QMUL. You will be shown around the campus by a current student. If you want to see a particular department, this can sometimes be arranged, but you must request this when making your booking.

Offer Holder Days
Once a student applies to and receives an offer for a programme in the School of Engineering and Materials Science, they will normally be invited to one of our offer holder days. These events give offer holders an opportunity to see the campus and facilities, find out a bit more about the programme and meet current students, academics and support staff.
Please note that there is no parking at the Mile End campus and that the surrounding area is a Controlled Parking Zone. You are strongly recommended to use public transport.
