We are excited to welcome pre-registered students on to campus for our Open Day on Saturday 12 November. 

The tours will last roughly one hour, and you will be shown around the facilities for your course area and meet our expert academic teams.

You will also have an opportunity to meet our friendly student ambassadors, and find out about all the things you need to support you in your studies such as transport, funding, learning support and accommodation.

Your tour will be primarily outside so please wear appropriate clothing for walking and  the weather on the day.

Please be aware the campus has a no dog policy (with the exception of assistance dogs).
