Coronavirus information and guidance

Talk and tour

We encourage anyone thinking of applying to the University to attend one of our visiting days. If this is not possible, a talk and tour can be arranged instead.

The Admissions office will be closed for virtual visits over the Christmas holiday. The last available virtual visit will take place on Friday 18 December 2020, with visits starting again in early January.

Our virtual visits

Until further notice we will be offering a virtual information session in place of our talk and tour, every week day. 

This session will be hosted by a member of Admissions staff and will cover our flexible degree structure, how to apply, accommodation, student life and more.

You can also book an 'ask a student Q and A' as part of your virtual visit. This session is hosted by one of our student Ambassadors and provides an opportunity for you to ask all of your student experience questions. If you do not have time for a session, you can meet more of our ambassadors on the ask a student page.
