Applicant Days

Had an offer or been invited to interview? Book your Applicant Day now


What to expect on an Applicant Day

Applicant Days are specifically for undergraduate applicants who have been made an offer or invited for interview, so come and enjoy the day with us. Your family and friends are welcome to come too.

You'll spend time with your academic school and discover more about your course, meeting staff, current students and other applicants. You'll also be able to take a tour of the campus and see our different study bedrooms.

Once your booking is complete, you'll receive a confirmation with your itinerary and, if you are travelling by car, a parking permit.

Where an interview is required this may be on an Applicant Day, or we hold separate Selection Days for some courses.

“I came to an Applicant Day, had taster sessions with the department and got a chance to meet some of the lecturers. That was fantastic – I knew immediately that I wanted to come here, because they were so enthusiastic and engaging." Helena Phillips, Religious Studies and Philosophy BA

Come to an Open Day or Applicant Day. You can really trust your gut when it comes to these things, and being able to walk around campus and picture what my life would look like here really sold it to me.

You're welcome at any time

If you can't make an Applicant Day, there are other ways to visit us. We hold campus tours during the week and all you need to do is book a place online. We also offer self-guided tours of the Canterbury and Medway campuses so you can explore at a time convenient to you.

If you're an international student and live outside the United Kingdom and Europe, we can organise individual visits for you and your family to the Canterbury and Medway campuses at any time of year.

Get involved, get to know the lecturers, join societies in your first year. Just be proactive and don’t be afraid to get stuck in.
