Applicant days

Why come to an applicant day?

Visiting us is the best way to get an impression of what it feels like to be part of our student community.

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. 

Your tailored applicant day is designed to help you make the right decision about your university. Make sure you attend so you have all the information you need before making your firm choice. 

We know you'll be seeking the advice and guidance of your parents, family and friends when making your decision, so we are pleased to extend our invitation to them too. During the course of the day, parents and guardians will have the opportunity to break off from student activities and raise any questions they may have to our staff and student panel. This question and answer session will be made up of key support areas, as well as admissions staff and current students.

How do I register?

What is an applicant day?

Applicant days are subject-specific days which offer you the opportunity to discover your chosen course in much more detail. Tailored exclusively for those applicants who have received an offer to study with Plymouth University, the days are an essential step on your applicant journey. Applicant days take place from January through to April, following the UCAS application deadlines.

  • take part in interactive workshops and subject-specific activities
  • explore the city, campus and our state-of-the-art learning facilities
