Applicant Days

Once you have an offer from us, either conditional or unconditional, you'll be invited to visit us to get a feel for life at the University.


A typical Applicant Day includes:

Your visit will include some, or all, of:

  • An opportunity to meet with your subject tutors
  • A chance to meet other prospective students from your course
  • Taster sessions for your chosen subject
  • An interactive Campus Tour, introducing you to the University community
  • Advice sessions on accommodation and student finance

Applicant Days will take place in January, February and March. You are welcome to bring a guest with you on the day.

We ask that Applicant Day visitors for our sports courses (excluding Sport Development) wear appropriate sports kit.
