Applicant Days

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


What to expect on an Applicant Day

Take a guided campus tour and view study bedrooms that you may be calling home in a few short months! You'll discover more about your course and spend time with your academic school, meeting current students and other applicants.

Interviews are normally held on an Applicant Day, although this may not always be possible. Separate Selection Days are held for Computer Science at Canterbury and Journalism and Social Work at Medway. Please return later if none of the dates are convenient for you, as new events may be added depending on your course.

Once your booking is complete, you'll receive a booking confirmation with your itinerary and, if you are travelling by car, a parking permit. Due to capacity, please limit the number of guests to a maximum of two.

Supportive Community

“Everybody was so friendly and I just fell in love with the University. There’s a buzz here that the other universities I saw didn’t have.”

“The lecturers are not only experts in their fields, they have a genuine passion for what they’re teaching. It’s been great for me to study a subject I love in an environment where the educators want me to succeed.”

You're welcome at any time

We would recommend attending an Applicant Day wherever possible. However, if you are unable to attend, there are other ways you can visit us. We hold campus tours during the week, 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.

You will be surprised at how independent you become at university - so if you are not quite there yet, don't worry.
