You can also meet us at our Open Day on Saturday 24 June 2023 – you’ll still be able to find out more about studying with us, meet our staff and students and tour our campus.


An Applicant Taster Day is more in-depth than an Open Day and gives you a more tailored experience.

You’ll find out more about your course and hear about the student experience through taster sessions and opportunities to meet academic staff and current students. You can also visit our accommodation and chat to our support services. If you have already been to an Open Day, this is your chance to explore your course and department in more detail and if not, you’ll get an in-depth introduction to studying here.

Here are some of the things you'll be able to see and do during your Applicant Taster Day:
