Take your career to another level

Take your career to another level

Just completed a degree and thinking about more study?

Or are you a working professional looking for a competitive advantage or career change?

Whatever your current situation, you should talk to us about postgraduate courses, including research degrees, at Open Day.

Some courses can be completed in only six months and study options include part-time and online.

Going places with Scitech

This Open Day, you’ll get to immerse yourself in Virtual Reality with Scitech’s Samsung Gear VR station.

Supported by Oculus technology, these portable headsets allow you to explore fascinating new worlds or experience a rollercoaster ride – all without leaving your seat!

Don’t miss the Scitech exhibitions at all three of our campuses.

Scitech joins the party

Welcome to the 'Bullet Time' effect

Brought to Open Day as a special 25th anniversary activity, this 180 degree video booth experience lets you create your own moving image.

Thirty six synchronised Canon DSLR cameras are triggered at the same time to capture your pose. The resulting bullet time effect leaves the impression of a 3D picture.

This is serious fun and takes the classic jump shot to another level!

Share your movements on social media when you visit one of our 2016 Open Days.
