Every term, the University organises free open lectures on a wide variety of topics and aimed at a general audience.
Some lectures require pre-booking. Where tickets are needed, this is also indicated in the publicity.
We distribute information on upcoming lectures to interested members of the public at the start of each academic term (October, January and April). If you would like to receive a free copy of this leaflet either by email or by post, please join our mailing list. Please note that leaflets will not be sent out for Summer term 2021.
Updated lecture information is always available here on our web pages. As these pages are updated frequently, they will publicise lectures which we were unable to include in the leaflet.

Reflecting our commitment to the safety and wellbeing of our community, the University will not be hosting any open lectures on campus during Summer term 2021. All open lectures will be held online. Please come back to this web page for regular updates.
DID YOU KNOW that we record some of our open lectures and they are available to watch again on our open lectures YouTube playlist?
