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 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 are following the Government and Public Health England’s guidance on Covid-19 closely, and as this is an ever-changing situation, we cannot currently say with certainty whether all of our upcoming events will be taking place on campus.

Once you have booked or registered your interest in any of our events, we will email you with updates, so please keep a close eye on your emails.
