We’re excited to be holding a Live Online Q&A session on Thursday November 11 with Sparsholt College Principal Julie Milburn, and Assistant Principals Laura Black and Mark Treagust, who will be answering your questions and introducing the wonderful Sparsholt College Campus in advance of our on-campus Open Event. This is the perfect opportunity to have your questions answered if you cannot make an on-campus visit this time around.

If you have registered to visit us on-campus event you will also receive a recording of this talk after the event.


We are excited to welcome pre-registered students on to campus for our Open Day on Saturday November 13 in the safest way possible. Book onto a subject tour to take a look around your subject’s incredible facilities, and have your questions answered by our expert tutors.

The tours will last roughly 45 minutes and you will be shown around the facilities for your course area and meet our expert teaching teams. 

You will also have an opportunity to meet our friendly students and find out about all the things you need to support you in your studies such as transport, funding, careers, learning support and accommodation as well as Industry Placements and Apprenticeships. 


You may book onto more than one subject tour, however you only need to book one ticket per interested student and to keep you and our community safe we advise only one accompanying adult where this is possible. If you have accessibility requirements please email

Your tour will be primarily outside so please wear appropriate clothing for walking and  the weather on the day. 

Please wear a face covering and if prior to the event you or the person you are visiting with are showing any symptoms of Covid please do not come onto campus. Please be aware the campus has a no dog policy (with the exception of assistance dogs). 

If you would like to book your place to discuss our specialist degree courses at University Centre Sparsholt, register here.
