What are Applicant Days?

An Applicant Day is the perfect opportunity to find out everything you need to make the right decision about your future. You’ll experience taster lectures and workshops, meet your course tutors and current students, and see all that UWE Bristol can offer you.

Come along and get a real taste of what it’s like to study your chosen course and meet other applicants like you.

What happens at an Applicant Day?

You’ll spend more time focusing on your course so you can ask in-depth questions about modules and find out what it’s really like to study here. You’ll also have the chance to take a tour of the fantastic department facilities, the campus and accommodation. And we’ll have experts available from Admissions, Finance and Disability Services so you can ask any questions you might have.
