Postgraduate Applicant Event FAQs

What time does my event start?

The Postgraduate Applicant Event will run from 13:00 - 15:30, although the amount of time you spend with us on the day will depend on the sessions you would like to attend.

Can I bring family and friends?

Of course! Choosing a university is a big decision, so we’d absolutely encourage anyone who is supporting you to get involved and attend some of the sessions. 

Do you have support for students with a disability?

You can let us know about your access requirements when you book onto our Online Clearing Event. We’ll then work with you to do everything we can to support you. 

If you would like to check our campus for its accessibility, we have worked closely with AccessAble (the leading provider of access information for disabled people in the UK) to produce an assessment of our campus and facilities. This work has provided detailed information about our access: find out more about their assessment of our campus and facilities.

An update on Covid-19

We recognise that we are in an uncertain time due to Covid-19, however we are continuously monitoring government and Public Health England advice and guidance to ensure the safety of our students, staff and visitors. To make sure you have all the information you need, we have created an FAQ page for home/EU students and an FAQ page for international students, which are regularly updated as restrictions change, so please take a look at these.
