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.

The visit days are subject-specific and provide an opportunity to explore the Department, meet members of staff and current students who can tell you about studying and living in Manchester. Parents are also welcome to attend the visit day and we arrange a separate programme for them.

Right now we don't know if this will be on campus, but as soon as we do, so will you. Our admissions department will contact you with more information.
