Offer holder days

These are subject-specific events that give University of Plymouth offer holders a chance to take the next step towards starting their course in September.


In-person and virtual offer holder days

We will continue to follow government guidance and look forward to be able to welcome you to an 'in-person' offer holder day in the new year. We are also ready to make any of these events virtual to ensure that we can meet at a distance even when meeting in person is not possible. We will continue to update our webpages and keep in touch with you via email if the situation changes.

All our offer holder days are designed to give you a taste of Plymouth, connect you with passionate staff, and help you feel confident with your choice of course.

Our offer holder day events have now all taken place for this academic year. Please check back later in the summer when our dates for next year will be released. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact the Student Recruitment team studentrecruitment@plymouth.ac.uk.

What is an offer holder day?

Offer holder days are invite-only events for students who have made an application to the University of Plymouth and are holding an offer with us, either conditional or unconditional. The experience is subject specific and tailored to give you the chance to explore your chosen course and the University in much more detail.

I’ve already been to an open day – why should I attend an offer holder day?

Given that you are much further on with your university application, it’s likely that you’ll have questions that will differ from the ones you had before making your application and initial choices.

Offer holder days are invite-only events that give you the opportunity to attend course-specific activities and spend more time with future classmates, course leads and academics who will be teaching you.

The day will give you the perfect opportunity to decide whether the course, university and city are the best fit for you as an individual.

You'll experience in-depth course lectures, sessions and activities that were not available in such detail at our open days. We understand that as well as the course, you also need to explore the University itself so we have our Accommodation Team, Student Ambassadors, Admissions Team and Student Support Services on campus, to allow you to discuss any individual requirements specific to you alongside subject specific activities.

What happens after I book on to an offer holder day?

Once you have booked your place, we will keep in regular contact with you via email to provide you with all of the details and also the links needed to access the online sessions throughout the day, if you are attending virtually.

If you are unable to attend one of our Offer Holder Days, our campus tours will give you the chance to explore the campus and see for yourself just how close we are to the beautiful coastline. Visit our campus tours page to find out more.
