Department of Social & Policy Sciences

Applicant Visit Days

What are Applicant Visit Days?

Our Applicant Visit Days are invitation only, so you will only be able to attend if you have received an offer from the University and wish to take a closer look at the Department before finalising your UCAS choices.

You will be contacted by us once an offer has been processed and will receive a choice of visit dates.

Travelling to the Applicant Visit Day

If you are coming to one of our Wednesday Applicant Visit Days there will be a free bus service from Lansdown Park & Ride to the campus. On our Saturday Applicant Visit Days visitors may park on campus (Please note that Park & Ride buses to the campus will not be running).

What happens on the Applicant Visit Day?

The Applicant Visit Day consists of:

  • A welcome talk by the Head of Department
  • An introduction to the Department of Social & Policy Sciences
  • A talk about placements
  • A question and answer session with some of our current students
  • A chance to meet some academic staff in the Department
  • A tour of the campus

Other opportunities to visit us

We also hold University Open Days which are much larger and aimed at students prior to UCAS application.
