Open Days and visits

Visiting us gives you the opportunity to explore the university campus and facilities, meet students and staff and ask questions – helping you choose the right place to study.

Join us at one of our Open Days on Friday 7 July, Saturday 16 September or Saturday 21 October 9:00-16:00.

Very well organised and informative. Everyone was extremely helpful and friendly.
