You'll have the chance to speak to experienced staff at these stands and find out more about the University. It's a good idea to plan ahead and perhaps write down your questions in advance so you don't forget something important on the day.

Supporters Q&A

Parents, carers, and supporters are welcome to attend our Offer Holder Day, however please note that the course experience sessions are only for our offer holders. Whilst they're busy test driving their degree and making friends, join us at our Supporters Q&A where you can meet with both Faculty representatives and University support staff.

They'll be a short presentation covering the most frequently asked questions, then we'll open the floor for you to ask us any questions you have. We look forward to seeing you there.
