Visiting  the department

Open days

The University holds two open day events, which are usually held in June and September.

Other opportunities to visit the university and the department

For those who can't make one of our open days, we have been running short informal tours of the University's main precinct area over the summer months.

Whenever possible we will do our very best to accommodate ad-hoc visits to the department, it is important you contact Chelsea Dix (email: to organise an appropriate time to visit. All our academic staff are also active researchers, so we cannot guarantee a chance to meet a member of staff unless an appointment has been made prior to your arrival.

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.

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