    It's no longer accepting registrations for the open day, but this is my first choice I really want to go, also I have bought the train tickets.

    Has any one attended an open day without being able to register?

    Thanks

    PLEASE HELP

    You can try to go anyway, because there will be people who do register but then end up not going. However, if you do this you won't end up getting any pre-visit information, and there may not be space in any talks that you want to attend. They're unlikely to throw you out if you make the effort of going.

    I would go anyway, especially if you have the tickets. they cant stop you walking round campus or visiting the city. Imo they will let you in and there are bound to be a few no shows. You could ofc contact them and plead your case or be put on a waiting list.

    I've been to Durham, Manchester, York, and Sheffield open days this year and at no point has anyone asked me if I'd booked. The only thing was that at the Durham Computer Science tour lots of people who didn't book tried to get in and they asked the people who hadn't booked if they could leave and come back at a less busy time. No one did so they just worked around it.
