Virtual Open Days

Looking to find out more about postgraduate opportunities with us? Why not join our Virtual Open Day? We hold live chats throughout the autumn and winter months where you can personally talk to student advisers, admissions staff and academics. Academics will represent various university programmes and they will be on hand to answer any questions about courses you may have.

It is also the chance to talk to current postgraduate students from across our main subjects. They will be available online to give you their first hand experiences of studying here. You can ask them direct questions about their studies, without even leaving your own house.
