Our Department of Politics, Languages & International Studies live Applicant Visit Days (AVD) will take place between March and May 2022. You can attend these events if you're an offer-holder for one of these courses:

Our AVDs are just for offer holders, and will give you a real insight into what it's like to study at the University. You will meet current students and members of staff from the Department and have the chance to ask all the questions you need to make your decision. 

Admissions Tutor talks

Before attending an in-person AVD, we highly recommend that you watch our Admissions Tutor Talks, recorded at this year's Virtual AVD events.

Modern Languages students can watch Admissions Tutor Enrico Cecconi introduce our Modern Languages courses, with the help of a number of student ambassadors. And Admissions Tutor Fran Amery introduces Politics with Economics, Politics and International Relations, and International Politics with Modern Languages. We try not to repeat too much information across virtual and in-person events, so to get the full picture of information please do make time to watch the videos if you can.

Saturday 9 April: Politics with Economics, Politics and International Relations, International Politics and Modern Languages, and Modern Languages.
