If you receive an offer to study Physics with us we will invite you to an Applicant Visit Day. These take place from mid-October until the end of March. We suggest you book as soon as you can as places are limited. From our experience these visits are invaluable in making your final decision between universities. Even if you have already attended an open day this visit will provide an extra layer of depth and a chance to see the department during term time. You will have the opportunity to have in-depth conversations with academic staff and students as well as seeing the department, campus and student accommodation. If you have received an offer from us but are unsure of how to register for an visit day please contact the admissions tutor.
If you live outside the UK and are unable to attend one of our visit days we are happy to work with you to ensure you have all the information you need. This could include arrranging a separate visit to coincide with your travel plans, attending a virtual visit day or Skyping with admissions staff or current international students.
The visit day was a real eye opener for me; it provided me with an insight into what the department and campus had to offer. It wasn't just the academic prospects which enticed me, as I was also drawn to the welcoming and comforting community of the University, one which I could easily see myself being part of. Plus Birmingham city centre provides endless activities to keep me busy, from shopping to pubs and clubs! Looking back now, my time here has definitely exceeded my expectations and I have really felt at home here; I am enthusiastic for what the future holds for me at Birmingham!
