College of Social Sciences

Applicant Visit Days are an excellent opportunity to learn more about your chosen course once you've been made an offer to study at Birmingham. By attending one of these days you will be given an introduction to the course you've chosen, further detail around what you can expect to study when you're here and, most importantly, the opportunity to speak to current students and academics about what it's really like at the University of Birmingham. 

While you are awaiting a decision on your application take the time to find your chosen course in the department listing below and see when upcoming Applicant Visit Days are taking place.

Please note that booking is essential. Once you have been made an offer, your Department will contact you to invite you to register for an Applicant Visit Day, providing a selection of forthcoming dates; capacity is limited, so these may vary from the dates shown below. If you are planning ahead, we would advise you to keep two or three dates in mind in the event that your first choice is not available.
