Our Department of Social & Policy Sciences live Virtual Applicant Visit Days will take place between February to April 2022. You can attend these virtual events if you're an offer-holder for one of these courses:

Our Applicant Visit Days 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. 

All events will take place live via Microsoft Teams.
