Want to get a head start on student life?

Join us for an applicant VIP experience. This summer we are giving firm applicants an exclusive 24 hours on campus including an overnight stay in our Waterside accommodation so you can have a taste of what student life is like.

Speak to our support teams, get involved in activities and meet your future bffl. Come September, you’ll know the ropes.

  • Thursday 21 July – Friday 22 July 2022

Please note, you must be an applicant and have us as your firm choice university to be able to attend these events. Invitations will be sent directly to applicants via email.


How does the booking process work?
