Discover Days

Discover Days

The University of Manchester's Discover Days are informative, interactive events for aspiring undergraduate students who are interested in certain subject areas, but may not know exactly which course to choose. They are ideal for Year 12 students, or for other people applying to university through UCAS and considering Manchester.

Discover Days give you real, in-depth insight into the unique features and opportunities of degree courses that you might study at Manchester. You’ll gain first-hand experience of university study, learn more about Manchester student life and be able to make informed decisions about your university choices before the UCAS application process starts.

Who should sign up for a Discover Day

These events will be of most benefit to learners who are seriously considering pursuing the subjects covered at degree level and who want more in-depth knowledge about what we offer. Discover Days are for learners in Year 12, or other people who are in the process of applying to university through UCAS and think they might want to apply for a course at Manchester.

Registration
