University open days 2015

The best way to find out about a university is to see it for yourself. Coming on an open day or event can be crucial in helping you decide where - and what - you want to study. So we do everything we can to make sure you get all the information you need.

There are lots of ways to visit. Which one you choose depends on what kind of course you're interested in and what you want to find out. Here are our upcoming events.

QTS Skills sessions

Free support sessions for the pre-entry QTS skills tests

To ensure all teachers are competent in numeracy and literacy, the NCTL has introduced two new pre-entry QTS skills tests. You will be required to prove that you have passed the QTS skills tests in numeracy and literacy before taking up an offer of a place on the course.

Free support sessions for the pre-entry QTS skills tests

We will be offering free support sessions in numeracy and literacy starting from January 2016.

Please bookmark this page if you are interested in attending, you will be able to book on to the sessions in December.

Course open days

Course Open Days are focused on a particular course or subject area. They're mainly aimed at people who have been made an offer to study an undergraduate degree here in 2016, but if you just want to find out more about a course or get a feel for the University, you're welcome to join us.

We don't run these events for courses such as healthcare or teaching, where we hold selection events instead. If you want to study these courses and would like to visit, please attend one of our general undergraduate open days or a student led campus tour.
