Open Days

We run Open Days for prospective applicants in July and September, coinciding with the University Open Days. There will be talks and lectures and the Tutor for Admissions, the Admissions Officer, the Access and Schools Liaison Officer, subject tutors and undergraduates will be available to answer your questions. There is accommodation for students travelling from a distance and school groups. The days will include talks on the admissions process, demonstrations of mock interviews, subject tutor sessions, and guided tours of the college.
