YourEHU Early Years Education – Applicant Visit Day

You will receive an invitation to an Applicant Visit Day by email and post.

These events are your chance to spend some time on-campus before you have to make your firm and insurance choices in May, and for you to find out what it would be like to study and socialise here.

What is it?

You will be able to:

    • take part in a subject taster session, or have a one-to-one session with academic staff from your department – your opportunity to get a feel for what studying your course would be like
    • chat to current students from your department – the perfect way to find out what student life is like here!
    • view our range of on-campus accommodation and see what life in halls of residence looks like
    • find out about accommodation, finance, student support, study abroad options and career advice
    • go on a campus tour and find out where you will be studying, as well as where you will be socialising!

Even if you have previously attended an open day, we strongly recommend attending an applicant visit day as it provides a very different experience.

When are they taking place?

The date of your Applicant Visit Day is dependent upon your course:

Wednesday 13 February or Saturday 2 March

  • BA (Hons) Working and Teaching in the Early Years
  • FdA Early Years Education and Leadership

Saturday 16 March

  • BA (Hons) Early Years Education with QTS

  1. Follow the link in the email we sent to confirm your place
  2. We will post you a booking form which you can return (free of charge) and we will process your booking
