What to expect from a dBs Institute open day

The doors to dBs Institute are open to visitors once again and we’ve got some very special activities planned. Let's take a look at what's in store…

Open days are the definitive way to experience what life at dBs is all about. They’re a chance to connect with our community, explore our course offerings and experience our facilities and surrounding cities. 

Regardless of whether you know what you'd like to study or your future career in the creative industries, everyone is welcome. Here’s what will be waiting for you when you pay us a visit.

Meet the tutors

We pride ourselves on employing the best industry professionals who practice what they preach. Our open days are a great chance to get to know them, their background, and experience, and discover the courses they teach on. 

They’ll be happy to talk you through their subject areas and give you a better insight into which course is right for you.

Get hands-on

Whether it's getting hands-on with one of our many mixing consoles, experiencing immersive 3D sound or getting busy with an Ableton Push controller, there will be a variety of activities that allow you to experiment with our extensive range of equipment.

There's also fantastic workshops and taster sessions that you can get involved in. These are a great opportunity to get an idea of just some of the things you'll be learning across our courses. You'll also be able to see our state-of-the-art studios and professional-grade equipment in action and hopefully, come away with some new ideas and techniques.

Many of these workshops will be led by our current students, so you'll have the chance to get a first-hand perspective of what it's like studying here at dBs Institute.

Explore the facilities

In addition to course talks and workshops, there will be regular tours throughout the day where you can see our facilities in all their glory. You’ll get to step inside our purpose-built studios, teaching spaces and lecture theatres and imagine what studying here is really like.

Chat with admissions

Our incredible admissions team will be on hand to support you with your course choices, explain student finance, accommodation and anything else you might want to know. If you need help meeting the entry requirements for our degree programmes, they will also be able to talk you through some pre-degree study options offered by our educational partner Access Creative College.


Book your place today

To book a place on our next open event, head over to our website, choose the open day you wish to attend and use the sign-up form to secure your place.
