Visit Us

Visit us

There are many ways you can visit us: on and off-campus.

We update these pages with event information throughout the year. We have our own Open Day on-campus and we attend various off-campus events around the UK and internationally.

Research programmes

If you are interested in one of our research programmes, we'd encourage you to visit and meet with your potential supervisor. Your proposed academic school or research institute will be able to help you with this.
