Visiting from abroad
If you’re considering studying with us, then we recommend you make a visit to our campus and city.
Whether it’s the majestic surroundings, the warm and friendly atmosphere or the infectious city buzz, there's no better way to experience it.
Staff from our International Office will be happy to meet you and show you around the University campus for a general visit. We can also try to arrange a meeting with your intended Academic School if you wish.
International Office staff are available on campus on Wednesdays and Thursdays each week, and campus tours can be arranged between 09:00 – 15:30 on those days. It may also be possible to arrange a tour on another day of the week. Please contact us for more information or to arrange a visit.
If you are unable to visit during the above times, then you are more than welcome to download and do a self-guided tour.
The tour will give instructions to direct you around campus and will include interesting facts about our facilities. The tour should take approximately one hour.
