What are Virtual Open Days?

Virtual Open Days, or virtual open houses, are reimagining traditional physical college or university open houses by taking them online. Choosing a college or university to attend is a life-changing decision, so Virtual Open Days give prospective students the freedom and flexibility to learn more about potential academic institutions, so they can make a more informed decision.

Virtual Open Houses are the ideal solution for institutions looking to extend the reach of their event and open their doors to a global audience. They enable institutions to interact directly with prospective students via interactive features, such as live chat, Q&A, polls, surveys, webcasts webinars and more, which is proven to increase student applications. 

What is the Difference between a Virtual Open Day and Open House?

Virtual open days and virtual open houses are the same thing. The difference between a virtual open day and virtual open house is semantic; it depends on what term you prefer and this is largely dictated by where in the world you are hosting your event. 

For colleges and universities hosting open houses in the UK, virtual open day is the most commonly-used term. However, in the US and Canada, these virtual events are referred to as virtual open houses. Other than that, these two terms mean essentially the same thing - a virtual session wherein prospects can gather more information and take a virtual tour of a school or listing.
