Open days

The University holds Open Days regularly (usually June, September and October) where you have the opportunity to tour the campus and find out more about the facilities and courses we offer.

If your application meets our criteria, you will be invited to an interview, as part of a Visit Day designed specifically for your area of study. On this day you will find out more about the School and its resources, and meet members of academic and admissions staff who will be able to answer any questions you have. Any offer of a place will be made shortly after this event.

We do not normally interview applicants. We make offers after carefully considering your UCAS application.
