The University provides a number of open days for prospective students wishing to visit. You will get the chance to meet academic staff, tour the facilities and the University as a whole, and see a range of presentations and exhibitions of what we do.
Should you be unable to attend one of the University-wide open days, tours for prospective students are also offered throughout the year, which are led by current students and organised centrally.
We regret we cannot accommodate visitors directly to our Department without prior appointments, and since all our academic staff are also active researchers, we cannot guarantee a chance to meet a staff member outside scheduled hours.
You will be invited along to a visit day if you have applied to study with us, and we think you have the potential to do well on one of our courses. Visit days are held between October and March, and generally take place every Wednesday during this period. Applicants are invited to meet both staff and current students on the course, as well as to have a look round the department. Parents are welcome to attend.
N.B. Occasionally the 'visit day' may be referred to as a 'UCAS day', 'interview day' or 'admission day'.
If you are applying with a BTEC or Access qualification, you will need to take a maths test as part of the visit day. Please see the Maths Test FAQs (PDF, 209kB) and CS Maths Test Guidance (PDF, 222kB) for more information.
