Subject days

Subject days (also known as applicant days), are course-specific days which offer you the opportunity to discover your chosen course in much more detail.

You may have already visited us at one of our undergraduate open days, but the questions you have now will be very different to the ones you had before making your application and initial choices.

Visiting us is the best way to get an impression of what it feels like to be part of our student community and you will also be able to meet other applicants who are hoping to study here at Wrexham Glyndŵr University.

Some of the days are designed for enquirers, while others are for applicants and for those who have already been offered a place on a course with us.
