We run several visit days for potential undergraduate students.

Pre-application visit days (Open Days)

Should you wish to come to the university and speak to staff and students before you apply, you can do so by attending one of our pre-application Open Days.

The University holds 3 pre-application Open Days a year, throughout June and September.

Student-led guided tours

The University offers student-led guided tours most Friday afternoons, which are for students and their families who are unable to attend an Open Day.

Self-guided tours

If you would just like to look around the University, you are welcome to pick up a self-guided tour leaflet from Student Recruitment & Admissions.

Self-guided accommodation tours, which take you round Pollock Halls, the University's main undergraduate Halls of Residence, are also available for visitors.
