Postgraduate Open Day

The Open Day is a fantastic way to:

  • see our campus
  • talk to academics about what you’re interested in
  • find out about funding opportunities
  • get tips on writing your application

School and institute open days

Throughout the year some academic schools and institutes run open days. At these events you can:

  • meet academics and current postgraduate students
  • find out about taught and research degrees
  • visit facilities

You may be able to arrange a visit that is not part of a scheduled open day. Research students in particular are encouraged to visit and meet with their potential supervisor. Contact your proposed academic school or research institute to find out if this is possible.

You may feel that you know very little about postgraduate study and have questions such as:

  • how much will a postgraduate course cost?
  • what is the difference between a taught and a research degree?
  • what is life like as a postgraduate student?
  • how will I benefit from postgraduate study?

The best way to find out the answers is to hear it from postgraduate staff and students who have been there. Come along to our Introduction to Postgraduate Study on Wednesday 12 November 2014.
