Open Days

If you are unable to make one of our scheduled Open Days you can book on one of our campus tours, which are held every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Booking is essential.

A Student Ambassador will be your guide around our modern and award-winning facilities including the library, student learning and support services, recreation, catering and accommodation and can answer questions about student life at the University. The tour will begin at our Campus Tour meeting point. 

We are offering a travel bursary to contribute towards the cost of visiting the University for the tour. See our website for Terms and Conditions.
