Virtual Open Day

Our Virtual Open Day (Tuesday 8 March) is a fantastic opportunity to meet our incredible academics and staff.

Some sessions include presentations and some are drop-in workshops, but all our sessions are designed to help answer any specific questions you may have.

If you are unable to attend, we also run live chat sessions with individual tutors on an ongoing basis.  You can also contact us at if you are unable to attend but would still like to talk to our academics or staff.

open day timetable

We have split our timetable into two sections – one dedicated to the experience of studying at Dartington Trust, and one where you can dig deeper into the courses themselves. Please ensure you look at both sections ahead of time and ensure you know the times of the sessions you wish to attend.

All sessions are running on BST (British Summer Time UTC+01:00).

Please make sure that you have downloaded the Zoom App before joining the session – this guide has details on how to do this, plus other advice if you’re new to the platform.
