Applicant days

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

Our last applicant day event has now passed...but don’t worry.

If you weren’t able to make it to one of our applicant day events, there are still plenty of opportunities to see our campus, facilities and student accommodation first hand, helping you to feel confident with your choice of course.

What is an applicant day?

Applicant days are invite-only events for University of Plymouth offer holders. 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 applicant 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.

Applicant days are invite only events which give you the opportunity to attend course specific activities and spend some time with the course leads and academics. This gives you the chance to decide whether the course and the University is the best fit for you as an individual. There will be more in-depth course lectures, sessions and activities which were not available in such detail at our Open Days. All of the University support services are present at our Applicant Days as well as tours of the University halls so you will have another opportunity to view these during your visit.

Decide on accommodation

The applicant day will also give you the opportunity to check out University-managed halls and student accommodation options in more detail and feel confident about where you want to want to live.
