Please note for these events:
- No guests are allowed - we only have space for 15 prospective students per session and if we allowed visitors then this would cut the potential to engage with students by half.
- Children aged under 11 can accompany a visitor as they are not counted in the figures for an organised activity for under 15 people.
- This session will be a first come, first served basis with a very limited number of 15 places per session. If the session is fully booked you can still book but will be placed on a waiting list. Should a space become available you will be notified by email. Please do not turn up to the university if you have not received a notification that you can attend.
