Imagine being able to find out about what university has to offer, but without having to travel anywhere to do it.  Oxford Brookes strives to embrace innovation, new technologies and technological advancements, and the university has been preparing a new way for you to find out all about the Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment.

The Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment can now be visited with the click of a mouse or swipe of a finger.  The Virtual Open Day website is full of exciting new video content about the facilities on offer and the community of staff and students. On Tuesday 4 February 2014, the website will launch and for one day only Brookes will show live webcasts and live content from lecturers and students, giving prospective students a chance to ask questions directly to lecturers.  Sometimes it can be difficult to visit a university of choice in person, so Oxford Brookes are delighted to offer this opportunity to take a virtual tour.

The Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment at Oxford Brookes University is home to six Schools and Departments, providing specialist and interdisciplinary teaching, research and knowledge transfer across a wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. The programmes are delivered in purpose-built facilities in Oxford, and also by academic partners elsewhere around the globe.

The Virtual Open Day website for each School and Department in the Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment will be live on the 4th February at the following links:

School of Architecture

School of Arts

Department of Computing and Communication Technologies

Department of Mechanical Engineering and Mathematical Sciences

Department of Planning

Visit the Faculty of Technology, Design and Environment website for more information.

The next Open Day, where you can visit Oxford Brookes University in person, takes place on Saturday 7 June.
