Our next Vet School open day takes place on Manor Park campus on Saturday, 9 September 2023.

You will need to book a specific session in advance to attend.
  • Veterinary Medicine Session A (8:30am-12 noon) 
  • Veterinary Medicine Session B (10am-1:30pm) 
  • Veterinary Medicine Session C (12 noon-3:30pm) 
  • Veterinary Medicine Session D (1:30pm-5pm) 

What to expect at the Vet School open day

Each session will run as follows: 

  • 30 minutes – Arrival and check-in 
  • 60 minutes – Welcome and Veterinary Medicine Talk – These talks will include an introduction to Surrey, the campuses and life here in Guildford, followed by more information about studying veterinary medicine and science. 
  • 90 minutes – Tour of the Vet School Main Building, Veterinary Pathology Building and Veterinary Clinical Skills Building 
  • Finishing with an opportunity to visit our information fair and an example of student accommodation.

Each session will include the same activities, so you only need to book and attend one.

You are welcome to also visit our Stag Hill open day (9am – 4pm) either before or after your Veterinary Medicine session. Stag Hill is a short, free shuttle bus journey away and there is no need to make a separate booking for this event. Guided tours of Stag Hill campus will depart regularly between 9am and 3pm. 

During your open day you are welcome to explore our amazing sports facilities at Surrey Sports Park, which is just a short walk from the Vet School Main Building.

Please arrive at the Vet School Main Building at the start of your session. View our map (PDF) to see where you need to go when you arrive. 

Your ticket will admit you and one guest onto your booked session.
