What can I see?

Every Wednesday from 30 November to 25 January inclusive, we will be offering the following between 12 and 4pm:

  • Tour of one of our Halls of Residence
  • Opportunity to meet with Student Housing and Student Finance advisers, to enquire about our accommodation policies and financial support
  • Talk to current students about their experiences
  • Opportunities to discuss your course of interest with academic or student recruitment staff
  • Guided walking tour of the campus, calling into University buildings on the way

Will I be able to meet with a lecturer on these dates?

We cannot guarantee an appointment with an academic on these days, as they are teaching days, but we will endeavour to arrange an appointment with student recruitment staff, who can deal with any questions you may have.

To improve your chances of seeing a lecturer please do book in advance of your visit.
