Open Days are an important part of the process when choosing a university.
Our undergraduate Open Days in 2013 will take place on
- Wednesday 2 October (10am – 3pm)
- Saturday 2 November (10am – 2pm)
If you have any queries please call 01224 262044.
Our annual Open Days are your chance to experience the University's stunning buildings and superb facilities, learn more about our courses and talk to current students about student life.
You'll be able to discover where our students live and how they have adapted to student life. It's also the chance to ask all your questions about applications and student funding.
We will post a timetable and information booklet closer to the open day – but you can keep checking this page for regular updates!
We look forward to
welcoming you to the best UK university for graduate employment!
