Open Days - student holding here to help you signOpen Days 2015

Our next 2015 undergraduate Open Day is on Saturday 24 October.

You can take a tour of the campus, the Students' Union and our accommodation. There are talks about studying abroad, how to get loans and grants and other things that matter to you.

Academic departments hold talks throughout the day. Staff and students will be there to answer your questions.

Most important of all, you get to find out how it feels – the atmosphere, the people, the campus and the city.

Department Open Days

Departments run their own open days, later in the year, after you apply. If a department offers you a place, or they're thinking of offering you a place, you'll be invited.

This is your chance to get to know your department better. You spend a whole day with staff and students. They'll tell you more about the course and the research they do. You'll be shown around the department and the University. Some department open days include an interview.
