Open days

We are carefully reviewing all our recruitment events in light of the developing coronavirus outbreak. 

View the  latest updates on measures we are taking

As we're unable to host on-campus visits, or attend events like UCAS and overseas recruitment fairs at the moment, look at our  virtual open day content  to help you learn more about the University. 

You will be able to watch videos about the university, including accommodation, student finance and course-specific sessions. 

We'll update our website once plans for 2021 events are able to be confirmed.

Policy on additional costs

All students should normally be able to complete their programme of study without incurring additional study costs over and above the tuition fee for that programme. Any unavoidable additional compulsory costs totalling more than 1% of the annual home undergraduate fee per annum, regardless of whether the programme in question is undergraduate or postgraduate taught, will be made clear to you at the point of application. Further information can be found in the University's Policy on additional costs incurred by students on undergraduate and postgraduate taught programmes (PDF document, 91KB).
