Undergraduate open days and campus tours

Each year from November to mid-March, the Department provides a sequence of 8 or 9 visit days in which students who have been made an offer by us are invited to visit the Department for a day. Visit days generally take place every Wednesday during this period and 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.

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.

Alternatively if you cannot make one of those dates you are welcome to take a self-guided walking tour or you may wish to contact the Faculty Office to arrange a tour of the Faculty of Engineering.

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.

Visit day

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 November and March.

N.B. Occasionally the 'visit day' may be referred to as a 'UCAS day', 'interview day' or 'admission day'.

FAQs about the visit day

Visiting the halls of residence

The procedure for visiting residences is that anyone wanting to view must contact the residence in advance to arrange an appointment. The Accommodation Office provide contact information for the main halls of residence. Residences will not be able to show people around unless they have made a prior appointment.
