The University of the West of England, Bristol (UWE) holds open days several times a year. These days enable prospective undergraduates and their families to visit the university and learn more about its study options, programmes and facilities. For the first time, the Open Day held on Saturday 23rd March 2013 included a range of displays and activities featuring current research in the Faculty of Health & Life Sciences. This report details the key findings of an evaluation of the research-based activities at the Open Day, focussing on the visitors’ engagement with research and UWE researchers and on the researchers’ views of the process of developing activities for the Open Day, their motivations for participating, the challenges they faced and the value of including research in the open day.
