The School of Computer Science operates exclusive Offer-holder Events Days (OHEs) from December to March for students who have applied to our undergraduate courses and who meet our admissions criteria. You will automatically receive an invitation if you are offering standard qualifications and are made an offer.
Due to the pandemic, all current Offer Holder Events are being held virtually. We hope to be able to welcome you to campus as soon as it is safe to do so.
Benefits of attending an Offer-holder Event
We strongly recommend that you attend an OHE. It's different to an Open Day, and gives you a great opportunity to meet current students and academic staff, learn what we could offer you if you chose to study computer science with us, and find out about our careers and employability, fees and finance, university life and student wellbeing.
A physical visit to campus would usually be an all-day event, but we know being online for many hours can be tiring. For that reason, we keep our virtual Offer Holder Events to just over two hours, and provide you with lots of useful information via our Offer Holder Hub webpage.
Parents and guests are very welcome to join you. Our computer science ambassadors are from a range of years, countries and academic backgrounds, and it’s the best way to really find out if you feel at home at Birmingham.
All applicants offering standard qualifications will be invited to an OHE via email shortly after an offer is made. You’ll be provided with a choice of OHE dates. Don't worry, if you can't make a date you can simply amend your registration online. All of our OHEs take place on Saturdays.
Everyone is welcome to join us!
The City of Birmingham
Birmingham is a wonderful city to visit and a vibrant place to study. If you are looking to visit Birmingham either before or after your Offer Holder Visit Day, please find further information on things to do. If you need advice, please contact us and we'll be happy to help!
Open days for prospective students
If you have yet to apply, please join us at one of our Undergraduate Open Days.
Degree Apprenticeship applicants
If you are apply for our BSc Computer Science with Digital Technology Partnership with PwC, you will be invited to complete assessment activities with each company following submission of your application and academic suitability checks.
If you are successful in passing the initial assessment activities, you will be invited to attend an assessment day with PwC. If you pass the assessment day, you will be made an offer for the degree apprenticeship and will receive an invitation to a specific Degree Apprenticeship Offer Holder Event in March, where you can meet current degree apprenticeship students. If you are made a standard offer on one of our undergraduate programmes instead, you will automatically receive an invitation to our suite of Offer Holder Events.
