Undergraduate Open Days

Our on-campus Undergraduate Open Days for 2021 will take place on Saturday 25 September and Saturday 23 October.

To ensure the safety of visitors, students and staff, these events will be scaled down in comparison to previous years, however they will offer the opportunity to meet academic staff on a face-to-face basis and experience our wonderful campus in person. Whilst the main elements of this on campus event will be carried out on a face-to-face basis, our course presentations will be made available online instead, allowing you to view them at a time which is convenient to you.

Keeping You Safe: Information for External Visitors to QMU    

See below for steps we are asking you to take to help us keep the QMU community safe:

  • Before you arrive: participate in twice weekly lateral flow testing: The Scottish Government recommends that everyone carry out lateral flow tests twice a week and we would encourage you to test yourself before you attend QMU. You can obtain lateral flow tests free from pharmacies, community testing centres and online..Before you arrive: we recommend that you download the Protect Scotland app.
  • On the day you attend, please ensure you remember to check in and out of QMU using the Scottish Government’s Check In Scotland app.  A QR code will be available to scan at Reception.
  • Please wear a face covering: in line with Scottish Government guidance, every-one on campus is required to use face coverings when inside the buildings. This includes in event spaces, lecture theatres, breakout rooms, in the atrium and in catering outlets. You can remove your face covering when eating or drinking or if you are in an office meeting space and your host has indicated that 1m distancing is in place.  You can read our policy on face coverings on our website.
  • Please don’t move the furniture: we have set up spaces considering safe distancing and so we ask you not to move the furniture in any of our spaces.
  • Keep your distance and keep left when moving around the campus and follow the directional signage. Please don’t congregate in tight spaces and try to avoid crowded spaces. Please try to avoid lifts if you are able, and, if you do need to use them, please restrict access to each lift to one household group at a time.
  • Keep your hands clean by washing them regularly throughout the day and using the hand gel at sanitiser stations on campus.
  • Go cashless: where possible, please use contactless to pay for food and drink with a form of contactless payment.
  • Take advantage of fresh air: try to keep windows open where this is possible, and where you can, spend time outside. 
  • If you develop COVID symptoms whilst visiting QMU, please inform your host who will support you leaving the venue safely and ASAP, then please get a PCR test.  If you feel unwell, it is particularly important that you keep your face covering on, and that you remain a full two metres apart from others.

We also have a room that can be used for isolation purposes if necessary.

If you are unable to attend our on campus Undergraduate Open Days, we will also deliver an Online Undergraduate Open Day on Wednesday, 3 November. Booking for this event and more information will be available soon.

Some feedback from those who have attended a QMU Open Day:

"Attending the open day is vital with any place you wish to apply for! When I came to QMU's open day, I saw a wonderful modern university which felt safe and comforting."
Iain Scott, BSc (Hons) Dietetics
"I also attended a QMU Open day and it was very useful in terms of getting to know the University a bit more. I think the thing that made up my mind was the general look and feel of the campus, it was clearly very new, and the facilities seemed very up to date."
Calum Duff, BA (Hons) Film and Media
"I chose to study at QMU because, after coming along to the open day, I felt it was an inclusive and friendly campus which put me at ease with moving away from home."
Katie Reid, BA (Hons) Drama and Performance
"I attended Queen Margaret University’s open day in Edinburgh and was very impressed with the campus, the podiatry staff and the good graduate employment rate, so I decided podiatry and QMU was for me."
