Our undergraduate open days give you the chance to discover more about our world-class university. Take tours of the campus, the Students’ Union and accommodation. Listen to talks about studying abroad. Find out advice about student loans and grants and discuss the 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.

Applicant days

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 days which normally take place between November and April.

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 either fully booked or that there is no tour taking place on that particular date.
