Postgraduate Open Day Programme 2014

Our day begins with an introduction to our University-wide postgraduate community, campus and facilities. The second part of the day gives you a chance to explore our postgraduate courses in more depth at our showcase and (in many cases) within your departments of interest. We will have postgraduates on hand to answer your questions, as well as to help you find where all activities are happening.
