Travel Reimbursement Scheme

We know how hard the cost of living crisis has hit our students and applicants. As part of our ongoing efforts to remove barriers to higher education to all learners, we've introduced a travel reimbursement scheme. This means if you are travelling to an Open Day, we’ll pay money towards your travel costs after the event.

Talks and tours

We offer a variety of talks throughout the day, covering everything from student finance to our unique learning experience. Our academics will be running subject talks, where you can delve into what you’ll be studying on a particular course, see the specialist facilities and hear about career opportunities.

Our friendly student ambassadors are on hand to help you to get to know our campus - from teaching and learning spaces to social areas where you can relax between classes. If you're looking to live on campus, join one of our student-led tours to see our variety of accommodation close-up. Explore inside some of the student halls and houses that you could soon be calling home.

Student life

You’ll find so much to offer on campus, including social hangouts and cafes. You can also find out about how to get involved with dozens of clubs and societies.

After your Open Day, why not explore the local area? You’ll find shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance of our Stoke-on-Trent campus, and a short bus journey from Stafford.

Quiet Programme

Open Days are busy and can be overwhelming for some of our visitors. Therefore, we have a quiet programme at our Stoke-on-Trent open days. This is designed for students who are impacted by sensory overload, such as on the Autism Spectrum Condition, have hearing or visual impairments and for applicants who may struggle with social and communication or have anxiety.

This means that a lot of the larger talks and information sessions which would be open to mass audiences are being replicated but for smaller cohorts of students. We have a quiet ‘Why Staffs’ session available in the morning alongside quieter campus tours and a finance talk and our Open Day sessions are generally quieter in the afternoon.

The quiet programme is only available at our Stoke-on-Trent campus due to the size of the event and campus. 

How to get here

Our campuses are well connected to local, regional and national transport links. All visitors are encouraged to take advantage of public transport to reduce emissions, and congestion on campus.
