Open days

Our Open Days provide an opportunity to visit not only the School of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, but also the wider University community.

During your visit you will have the opportunity to talk to staff and current students, find out more about courses and subjects, visit labs and watch demonstrations. Parents are welcome to attend as well.

Information about the Open Days will be available closer to the time on the main University website

You will have the change to meet and talk to academic staff, school admissions staff, as well as student representatives from the various societies in the School including Formula Student, UAV Society, Flight Simulator Society and Engineers without Borders.

We look forward to meeting you!

Sue Hubbard, Student Recruitment & Admissions Manager

UCAS Visit Days

UK-based applicants who receive an offer of a place on one of our undergraduate courses will be invited to attend one of our UCAS Visit Days.

These Visit Days are subject-specific and provide an opportunity to explore the School, meet members of the admissions team and, more importantly, current students. Parents are also welcome to attend the UCAS day and we arrange a separate programme for them.

During the visit you will learn more about our courses and their delivery, and see a range of our facilities, including our laboratories, as well as participating in a hands on subject-specific activity. But the most important people you will meet are our student ambassadors, our current students, who can tell you about studying and living in Manchester.

UCAS Days generally take place on Wednesday afternoons between November and March each year. Although the visits are relatively short, we believe that it is important for you to experience the environment in which you could study and meet the staff and students with whom you might work. However, if you are unable to attend or have already had the opportunity to visit the School on another occasion attendance at the UCAS Visit Day is not compulsory.
