Open Days and visits

Campus visits are really useful for students currently in years 11-13. We can arrange visits from school or college groups of around 60 people although in exceptional circumstances we may be able to accommodate larger groups.

Visits usually include a tour of the university campus, an opportunity to talk to some of our student ambassadors and a talk/presentation from the list below:
