Why should I come to an applicant event?
Our applicant events are the next step on from our Open Days but are exclusive to applicants who have been made an offer to study with us.
Choosing the university that's right for you is one of the most important decisions you will make for your future. Even if you have attended an Open Day, either online or in person, we would strongly recommend that you attend one of these events as they provide valuable insight into what it will be like to live (or commute), study and socialise with us.
As an offer holder for one of our courses, you have already narrowed down your choices and we’re thrilled to have made it onto your shortlist. We tailor these days to help you gather as much information as possible and hope that it makes it easier for you to make that important final decision.
We know that visiting the university, seeing our beautiful campus and meeting our staff and students is a really important part of your decision-making, and we will do our best to get you on campus if we can. In the meantime, our applicant events are the next best thing!
Why should I join the Teams group?
The Teams group is there to allow you to interact with other offer-holders from your course. It is an opportunity to ask questions - of each other and of University staff - and will also provide reminders and information about upcoming events. This is a great opportunity to connect with some of your future classmates until you are able to meet in person. When you join the Teams group, you'll be agreeing to adhere to our community standards which will be published on each group. Please note that your email address will also be visible to other participants.
