Summer Postgraduate Applicant Day - Wednesday 25 August

Join us on campus. Yes, on campus!

We are excited to announce that, in line with the government guidance, we are able to invite you back onto campus again. Our on-campus Postgraduate Applicant Day will take place on Wednesday 25th August from 1pm until 4pm and will offer you the chance to tour the campus you will be studying at, find out more regarding how postgraduate study will differ from your time as an undergraduate, what support you can access and what to expect come September. 

We understand how important it is for our applicants to explore the campus that they may end up calling ‘home’.  We’re proud of our campus and we can’t wait for you to see it for yourself.

Important Information - Safety on Campus

On campus

We have put measures in place across our campus to ensure the safety of you, your guests and our students and staff. These include one-way walking routes in our buildings, hand sanitisation points near building entrances, regular cleaning of high-touch points and plenty of signage reminding everyone of the guidelines.

Face coverings

Although restrictions are easing we will be encouraging you and your guest to please wear a mask throughout the day, unless exempt for health reasons. 

Your risk factors

Before coming onto campus, please consider if you fall into a higher risk category for Covid-19. We have provided a link here that provides some further information on who would be considered a higher risk. Whilst we're taking measures to ensure the safety of everyone on campus, if you fall into one or more of these categories, please consider whether it is suitable for you to come along to one of our tours.  

If you develop Covid-19 symptoms

If you have booked a place on the event, but develop Covid-19 symptoms before you are due to visit, please stay at home and do not visit our campus. Covid-19 symptoms include a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

You should get a test if you are displaying symptoms. Apply online on the Government's website or call 119 if you cannot access the internet.

You and anyone you live with must stay at home (self-isolate) until you get your result. Anyone in your support bubble must also self-isolate until you get your result. 



What safety measures have been put in place?

  • It is our priority to ensure the safety of all of our visitors, students, and staff. We are following the Government and Public Health England's advice and guidance on Covid-19 to make sure that our campus is a safe and secure environment for all. 
  • Please take a look at the important information above to ensure you are aware of the health and safety precautions we are taking before coming along.

Do I need to have evidence of a negative covid test?

We are not asking applicants to provide evidence of a negative test when you come on to campus. If you would like to have a test, prior to coming on the tour, you can order a test kit here.

Can I get in contact with my tutor?

Please note that whilst the programme leaders won't be available on the day, you are more than welcome to contact your tutor and ask any questions you have. Please find the relevant contact details below. 

Can I bring family and friends?

Of course! We recognise that choosing a university is a big decision, so we'd encourage you to bring a guest. However, we would ask that you limit this to just one person on this occasion. 

Will there be somewhere to get refreshments?

Yes, on Peel Park campus our student shop will be open to buy a range of drinks and snacks. There are also outlets available close by at MediaCityUK and Frederick Road. 

Do you have support for students with a disability?
