What is an Applicant Visit Day?

Our Applicant Visit Days are the next step on from our Open Days. Even if you have attended an Open Day, we would strongly advise you to attend an Applicant Visit Day as they provide invaluable insight to what it will be like to study and socialise at the University of Salford.

You will have the opportunity to build your own Applicant Visit Day by selecting what you’d like to do during the day. The Wednesday events will include optional, bookable talks and tours in the morning, followed by a welcome talk and subject-related activities in the afternoon. Once you have booked your place, your confirmation email will contain your personalised schedule for the day. Depending on the activities you select, the day could start as early as 10am and may run as late as 5pm.

The Saturday events will have the same welcome and subject activities running at a set time during the day, with the optional sessions running as drop-ins around these. We’ll confirm the schedule a little nearer the time, but the event will run from 10am to 4pm.

The optional sessions include:

  • Campus tour  
  • Accommodation tours  
  • askUS student support and finance talks
  • Disability and student support drop-ins  
  • Students Union and activities at Salford  
  • Finance talk  

The specific content of the afternoon sessions will vary by course, but will usually include:

  • A more detailed look into your course, the way you will be taught and how you will be assessed  
  • The opportunity to speak with current students about their experiences, both on your course and as a student at the University of Salford  
  • A tour of the specialist facilities (if applicable) and a chance to get hands-on
