Postgraduate Discovery Days

NEXT EVENT: 21 February 2024. Get essential information at this one-day virtual event about applying, admissions, funding and student life

Each session was very informative. The speakers and moderators explained things clearly and answered questions thoroughly. The event was well-structured and well-timed. All the staff and speakers were very polite and helpful. It gave me the information and reassurance I needed to bolster my confidence to apply.
