(Virtual) open day sessions

Get a real sense of what life is like in the Department of Physics and Astronomy by joining us for our virtual events - featuring discussions with our staff and opportunities to connect with our students.

Right now we're unable to welcome you onto our campus to show you around and answer your questions about studying with us, but that doesn't mean you can't connect with us online. We're holding virtual events, and making available the recordings in case you can't be there for the live sessions.

Undergraduate events

Our most recent Undergraduate Open Day took place on Saturday 19 June 2021. You can watch the recorded session for the Physics and Astronomy Open Day online.

You can also stream a range of sessions from the event covering accommodation, finance and student life.

Visit and interview days

After submitting your UCAS application you may be invited to attend a visit and interview day. We view the day as a two-way process, during which you can learn more about student life in Manchester and we can assess your suitability for the course you have chosen. We try to make the day as relaxed as possible.

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.

Postgraduate events

Our previous postgraduate virtual open event took place in March 2021.
