A short informal interview forms part of the admissions process for BSc (Hons)/MSci Computer Games Technology and BSc (Hons)/MSci Computer Forensics, so attendance at one of these Applicant Taster Days is compulsory for applicants to these courses.

If you are not able to attend an Applicant Taster Day, we may be able to offer you an informal interview by phone with a tutor on your course. You can book this through the Applicant Portal link.

We encourage you to join us at an Applicant Taster Day. University is a big step, and we want you to be sure that you know what to expect when you study with us.

You can:

  • Get in-depth information about your chosen course
  • Learn about the student experience here and the journey your course will take you on
  • Explore our campus including the School's cutting-edge facilities
  • Talk in person to your future academic tutors
  • Chat informally to our current students 
  • Find out about student finance, support services, accommodation and your application at our Information Hub* 

* The Information Hub may be of particular interest to parents and carers, allowing them to source specific information about the University.

You can choose to visit us on a Wednesday afternoon or a Saturday morning or afternoon. 

We aim to make these days as informative, interesting and relaxing as possible for you, and are happy for you to bring one parent or guest along too.
