Subject sessions and drop in hubs

Subject sessions are an opportunity for you to learn more about your preferred course. If there are questions you didn't get a chance to ask, or something you want to know more about, then you can go to a drop-in hub and speak with academics one-to-one, at a time to suit you. 

If you can't see your subject of interest in the list below, your course may be taught on a different campus.
