Applying to Study
University Open Days - book your place!
The University hosts a number of Open Days. During these Open Days we present course information and run live demonstrations illustrating some of the School's research. You will be able to join a tour around Life Sciences, which includes a visit to our labs, and attend a talk covering study with us and detail on our degrees. There will be members of staff and student ambassadors on hand to answer questions.
Campus Open Days:

Virtual Open Days:
- Thursday 22, Friday 23 and Saturday 24 September
Please be aware that these days are frequently oversubscribed and you must book a place in order to attend.
The School of Life Sciences has been recognised for its commitment to Athena SWAN in the achievement of a Silver Award in 2018.
