Open days

BSMS offers numerous opportunities to visit campus, with open days in June and more intimate meet and greets throughout the spring and summer terms.


Open days

Our open days give you the opportunity to look around, meet students and staff, and ask questions about studying here at BSMS.

For prospective BSMS students applying for September 2020 entry, our open days will take place on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 June 2019.  

Saturday 8 June

This open day will take place alongside the wider University of Sussex open day. There will be campus, library, sports facilities and students' union tours run by the University of Sussex, as well as a range of BSMS-led activities in the Medical Teaching Building.

Sunday 9 June

BSMS will also be hosting its own open day that weekend on Sunday 9 June. This will be a smaller affair, as the wider campus will not be welcoming visitors. However, applicants and guests will still have the opportunity to view the Medical Teaching Building, meet with students and view the accomodation option at the University of Sussex.

Open day activities

The main presentations will include an introduction to BSMS, our course structure and student life.

In addition, you will hear from a member of our Anatomy Department on how we teach anatomy and cadaveric dissection here at BSMS and watch a video about our clinical skills teaching.

In the BSMS Foyer you will be able to:

  • Get involved with teaching and learning demonstrations led by current BSMS students
  • Talk with our patient educators, admissions staff, our Medical Society and current students.

BSMS meet and greets

For those who cannot make our open days, we are running small, intimate visits on two afternoons.

These meet and greets will welcome up to 50 prospective students plus their guest to the BSMS Medical Teaching Building and will take place on the following dates:

Wednesday 24 April >

Limited Parking Spaces will be available and will be confirmed via email to registered attendees nearer the time.
