Applicant Visit Day
Sat 25 March 2017, 10:00 – 13:30 GMT
Visiting a campus is very different to reading a prospectus.
Our Applicant Visit Day is an ‘invitation only’ day for people who have already applied for a Higher Education course at Bradford College University Centre. The day will give you a real insight into what it is like studying here.
On the day you will get to take part in fun and engaging workshops run by your future tutors, meet other applicants, tour our award winning £50million campus and also have the opportunity to speak to tutors and current students who will answer any questions you may have.
If you’re coming from further afield there will be tours of student accommodation and our Student Ambassadors will be on hand to show you around the city.
By the end of your visit you will come away with all the information you need in order to make that big final decision; if not, you can always pay us another visit at one of our Open Days.
