Applicant visit days

Our applicant visit day events are for applicants, parents and guests. If you can’t attend an AVD or would like to find out more about the day’s activities, find out about some of the things we do.

Applicant Visit Day Programme (POLSIS Undergraduate)

Please note that this is subject to change, depending on the day you attend; for days on which a different programme is in place, you will find an additional sheet in your information pack.

In addition to our departmental activities, there will be optional activities, run by our central University teams. We also have separate itineraries for both candidates and parents (as outlined below).
