Applicant Visit Days

As an applicant to the University of Cumbria, you are invited to attend an Applicant Visit Day where you can get to know your tutors, facilities and your future class-mates.

Our Applicant Visit Day provides you with an unmissable opportunity to investigate your course of choice through hands-on, interactive sessions with your future lecturers, whilst also exploring the best bits of the town or city you will be studying in.

We will release the details of each event in 2020, but you can be assured that it will be an engaging and interesting day. Previous applicant days have included mini field trips off campus, hands on clinical skills activities for health courses, mock law trials, sessions delivered by alumni and current course students, controversial current affairs scenario group work, media & photography workshops, outdoor leadership activities, primary teaching workshops, sport activities and much, much more.

Please note that these Applicant Visit Days are for only for Undergraduate applicants who have received an offer for an Integrated Foundation Year or First Year degree, you can book your place here.

I attended an Open Day, is this the same?

In a nutshell, no. It’s a more personal and detailed day where you can really get to know the people and place where you’ll be spending the next few years.

Is it just a hands-on session?

There will be opportunities to speak to our support services such as finance, admissions and the SU as well as a chance to chat to students currently studying at the University of Cumbria.

Do I have to attend?

You don’t have to attend, but we highly recommend you do. It can give you the confidence that it is the right course, in the right place for you. Meeting future classmates also allows you to make friends before you even step on campus.
