The University of Winchester is opening its doors to 2023 applicants who want a real taste of our university lectures!

Get a head start on your university life by attending a real lecture with us in your chosen subject. With a huge variety of subjects on board, have a look at the rich array of lecture titles and specialisms that we offer with our world-leading research and award-winning teaching. Taster lectures will be running in the spring term of 2023. Bookings will open in January 2023.

These free events are for applicants and enquirers looking to start at the University in September 2023. Although this event is intended for enquirers and applicants, family members are more than welcome to come along for a self-guided campus tour but will not be able to enter the lectures.

Meet us at Main Reception on King Alfred Quarter to start your day!

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I contact the University with any questions?

If you have any questions about the events you can get in touch with us by emailing

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

To make check-in as quick as possible we ask that you bring your ticket along with you. If you are unable to print your tickets please just show us them on your phone.

Can I bring guests with me?

Due to limited spacing, non-applicant guests are not permitted to attend taster lectures. Please do not book them a space as this limits spaces for other applicants. Additional guests are welcome to join you for a self-guided tour or enjoy the university grounds and catering facilities.

How do I get to the University and where can I park?

You can find directions to the University on our Contact Us page. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide visitor parking at the University. The nearest car park is Tower Street Multi Storey which is a 10 minute walk from the University. Alternatively, Winchester is served by a Park and Ride service. Further information on parking can be found on the Winchester City Council Website.
