Visit days

We’re delighted to have been able to make you an offer in the School of Geographical Sciences.   

visit day (PDF, 116kB) will help you decide whether we are the right university for you. It's an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about studying at Bristol and to experience what it might be like to be part of our Geography community within the University of Bristol

You might have been to one of our Open Days where you explored the University precinct and saw some subject talks and displays which helped you decide which course to apply for at Bristol.

Now that you have an offer from us, your visit day (PDF, 116kB) is designed to give you more time to ask any questions you may have about your course, look around the facilities and find out more about what it is like to study here.

The day should give you a really strong sense of what it will be like to be part of our science community at the University of Bristol. On the day you will:

  • find out more about your course
  • take a tour of the buildings and facilities where you will study
  • meet staff and students and have plenty of opportunities to ask lots of questions
  • get a taste for the way we teach and learn with talks focusing on Human, Physical Geography and Computing.
