Ready to take the first step towards studying for a more sustainable future? Join staff from the Graduate School of the Environment during an on-site open day on 17 May 2024 for an authentic and informative taster of what it’s like to study on CAT’s MSc and MRes courses.

Why attend?

Our Postgraduate Open Days offer a unique opportunity to explore the CAT site and the WISE building where most of the Graduate School teaching takes place, and also provide you with the opportunity to chat with current students and our lecturers about our range of postgraduate courses designed to equip you with knowledge and skills to address the challenges of the climate and biodiversity emergencies.

This is an open day specifically covering our MSc and MRes open day, if you are interested in our MArch Sustainable Architecture Part 2 course then please look at our MArch Open day instead.

If you wish to study with us via distance learning or cannot travel to CAT for an on-site open day, take a look at our Virtual Open Days which cover the most important parts of our on-site Open Days during an online session. If you would like to attend a virtual open day instead, look at our upcoming dates on CAT's website.

About the day

The day takes place at the end of one of our on-site study weeks and provides a chance to find out more about becoming a part of our next cohort of changemakers through

  • Opportunities to talk with lecturers and current students;
  • Presentations giving an introduction and overview of the Graduate School and our courses;
  • A tour of the CAT site, including teaching facilities and accommodation;
  • Taster teaching sessions, giving a flavour of what it will be like to study with us;
  • Meeting fellow applicants who may be starting their studies at the same time as you.

The day will run from 9am to 5pm on Friday 17 May and follows a set programme of activities. The final programme will be sent to attendees closer to the day. The day is free of charge and includes lunch in our vegetarian café.
