Applicant Visit Days

After you have applied, you may be invited to an Applicant Visit Day to find out more about the University and our courses.

If this is relevant to you, an invite – including timings and activities for the day – will be sent to you.

Applicant Visit Days normally take place between February and April.

More on Applicant Visit Days

When you register for a place on one of our Open Days, you will be sent a programme and details of the best campus to visit for your chosen subject. The programme will give full details of activities and events at each campus.

You'll have the opportunity to tour the relevant campus, discuss courses with academic staff and meet current students.

This article in The Telegraph shows you how to get the most from Open Days.
