Offer Holder Days
Come and explore your new home. Our Offer Holder Days take place between February - April 2023. They give you the perfect opportunity to discover what studying with us is really like.
Do you live in the UK? Have you received an offer to study an undergraduate course with us in September 2023? Keep an eye out for your Offer Holder Day invitation. This will arrive by email and/or post with details about how to book your place.
A small number of our courses don’t have Offer Holder Days. Don’t worry - you can still visit us, tour our facilities and have all your questions answered on one of our regular campus tours.
