  • Applicant Days, in the words of our Applicants

    Wednesday 1st April

    By now, you've probably had at least one invitation from us to attend an Applicant Day. Even if you've visited us on an Open Day, it's certainly worth making another visit as the events are smaller, giving you more time to spend in the subject area(s) of your choice. Your questions for our staff and students will likely be different, as you'll be narrowing your options down, and have a better idea of what you're looking for from your university choices. They are also a great opportunity to have a look at the local city where you could be spending the next three years of your life, so take some time to explore the surroundings.
