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. Please note that bookings for both of our open days and meet and greet sessions are now closed.

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. Please note that bookings for both open days are now closed. Details of our 2020 open days will be announced in autumn 2019. 

We cannot arrange special visits for individuals, but those offered an interview will have a chance to meet students, tour the campuses and look around the facilities at the BSMS admissions days.

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 run small, intimate visits on four afternoons in spring each year.

These meet and greets will welcome up to 50 prospective students plus their guest to the BSMS Medical Teaching Building. Dates for the 2020 series of meet and greets will be announced in autumn 2019. 

In the past, these two-hour meet and greets have provided an opportunity for those who cannot make our open days to meet current BSMS students, speak with admissions staff and receive a brief tour of the University of Sussex accommodation option. 

We cannot arrange special visits for individuals, but those offered an interview will have a chance to meet students, tour the campuses and look around the facilities at the BSMS admissions days.

For questions concerning meet and greets at BSMS, please contact our outreach team on 01273 641841 or outreach@bsms.ac.uk.
