Experience Your Course on Campus

Get to know your course like never before

Are you holding an offer of a place at the University of Cumbria for September 2024? Then an Applicant Visit Day is your chance to discover your course like never before. Not only will you take part in practical workshops and in-depth facility tours with your future lecturers, but you’ll also get the opportunity to ask current students all your burning questions, so it’s not to be missed!

If you’d like to get to know the people who will be teaching you, your potential future classmates, and the opportunities on offer at the University of Cumbria, then book onto your bespoke Applicant Visit Day today.

Are Applicant Visit Days the same as Open Days?

No. Although they do have some similarities, Applicant Visit Days are designed specifically for offer holders, providing a real insight into what it’s like to study your chosen course at the University of Cumbria. If you receive multiple university offers, Applicant Visit Days can be invaluable for helping you decide which ones to accept. Open Days, on the other hand, are not as tailored to your course; they allow you to get a more overall feel for Cumbria and the student experience we offer.

Don’t miss out! Get ahead of (hopefully!) joining us in September.
