Open days

Our open days and information sessions are a really good way to see what it’s like to live and study study at UWS, and see the options available if you’re considering University student accommodation.

We hold open days and information sessions throughout the year which are aimed at students considering an undergraduate, postgraduate or postgraduate research degree at UWS.

Open days are a great way to:

  • Hear from staff and students about life and study at UWS
  • Get help with your application
  • Learn more about funding and financial support
  • See our facilities for yourself – from lecture halls and labs to our sport and students’ unions and student accommodation
  • Find out more about work placements, learning a language or study abroad opportunities

If you already have an offer from UWS, you will have been invited to our offer holder sessions. These are completed for those seeking entry to UWS in September 2019 but will be happening again next year. If you missed any of these or still want to visit UWS though, see options on how to do so, below.
