Applicant Visit Days

We're pleased to invite you to an applicant visit day. Come along and feel what it’s like to be part of the UoC student community!

You may have visited us at one of our Open Days and will have gained some amazing first impressions of the University, but the questions you have now as an applicant will be very different to those you had before applying.

Your Applicant day is designed to help you discover more in depth detail about your course. It's the perfect opportunity to meet your course tutors, current students and other applicants who hold offers on your chosen course. 

Refreshments and Lunch will be provided throughout the day and we will offer a contribution of up to £60 towards your travel costs. Further information about how to claim this will be sent to you after the event.

Did you know?

This year we are running our ‘Did you know?' competition.

You will receive your ‘did you know’ fact through the post and via email. To enter our competition to win £250 worth of Amazon vouchers, all you have to do is post the fact to social media with the hashtag #herewecumbria. One lucky winner will be picked at random.

Good luck!
