Applicant open days

Student group tour

If you've made an application to study with us, we may invite you for an interview or assessment, or we may make you an offer directly.

In either case, we'll invite you to one of our applicant open days which take place between November and April.

These post-application open days have a strong department focus and will give you the chance to really explore student life here, even if you've visited us before.

You can meet our academic staff and current students and get a true taste of what it’s like to study in our department.

What can you expect on an open day?

During our open days 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.


Campus tours 

Come and take a tour of the University central campus.

They take place on selected weekdays and leave at 1pm from the Students' Union Welcome Desk. 

If the date you'd like to visit doesn't appear on the booking form, this means it's fully booked or that there is no tour taking place on that particular date.
