Visit days

You may be invited to a visit day after submitting your application. These days include a one-to-one chat with one of our academics, and are intended to be as relaxed as possible - they are great for discovering more about student life in Manchester and the course you have chosen. You also get the chance to meet our fantastic current students.

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.
