Undergraduate visit days
Each year from January to mid-March, the Department provides a sequence of 8 or 9 visit days in which undergraduate students who have been made an offer by us are invited to visit the Department for a day. Visit days generally take place every Wednesday during this period and applicants are invited to meet both staff and current students on the course, as well as to have a look round the department. Parents are welcome to attend.

Should you be unable to attend one of the University-wide open days or the Department visit days, the following options are available for both prospective undergraduates and postgraduates:
- Campus tours offered throughout the year, led by current students and organised centrally
- A self-guided walking tour
- Faculty of Engineering tours can be arranged by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We regret we cannot accommodate visitors directly to our Department without prior appointments, and since all our academic staff are also active researchers, we cannot guarantee a chance to meet a staff member outside scheduled hours.
