Campus Tours

We run Campus Tours Monday – Friday between 9am and 3pm for prospective students and their families.

These tours are run by some of our current students (doing a wide variety of degrees).  The tours include a general orientation of campus, plus a visit to two residential colleges.  We can tailor the tours depending on your area of interest is and where possible we match our guides to your area of interest.  For instance, if a student was coming for a tour and was interested in Health Sciences First Year– we will match them up with a guide who is currently doing that programme.

Booking a Campus Tour is a great option as you can come any time that fits your schedule, gives you more time to look around and meet with staff on campus and, with the cost of travel, you can book cheaper flights.
