Registration information for individual students

Discover Days offer a unique chance to experience subject areas that you are interested in before committing to a particular choice of course or university.

These events are open to learners of all backgrounds from any area. In order that they are of maximum value, places on each day are limited.

Participants should register themselves. The day involves lots of small group work and the chance to talk to staff and students, so you won't be lonely!
Sometimes these events will clash with your regular classes at school/college. If this is the case, please ensure that you have permission from the appropriate staff before you register.

Please note that Discover Days are primarily designed for people who are thinking of applying to Manchester and who have not yet made a decision regarding their UCAS choices. You will therefore be given priority if you are in Year 12 or have not yet submitted your UCAS application.

Students on the Realising Opportunities programme or the Manchester Access Programme

Participants in the Realising Opportunities programme are welcome to attend Discover Days. Your participation will count as attending an event at a partner institution. Participants in the Manchester Access Programme can gain ten units towards their total by taking part in a relevant Discover Day.

Understanding the booking process

Upon completing the registration form, you will receive a brief, automatic confirmation that your booking has been submitted. Following this, you will receive an email from the team confirming whether a place has been reserved for you. Discover Days are usually very popular; to guarantee your place at the event, please ensure you reply to the email to reconfirm your attendance and that you have permission from your school. Without this confirmation we may offer your place to another participant.

Online booking for this summer’s Discover Days will open in April/May.
