Open Day 2024

University of Pretoria Open Day

5 May

On Saturday, 20 May, the University of Pretoria (UP) will hold an open day for high school learners from Grades 9 to 12, and their families. This event presents an ideal opportunity for learners and their parents or guardians to explore the wide range of study options available at the University. The UP Open Day gives learners and their parents the chance to find out exactly what certain fields of study entail.

What to do on the day

Parents and learners can speak directly to the faculties about their chosen study fields, listen to an address by the Vice-Chancellor and Principal, Prof Cheryl de la Rey, and attend sessions held by the various faculties. Learners who have been provisionally admitted to UP can visit the residences and meet the house committees, find out about UP’s Achievement Awards, experience the beautiful campus and find out more about the academic support programmes available.


The Department of Enrolment and Student Administration can help learners check their admission status, learners can pay their initial fees and those who have already been provisionally admitted can hand in their enrolment contract.
