Welcome to your Virtual Applicant Day

Student on a university campus

Applicant Days are subject-specific days which give you the opportunity to discover your chosen course in much more detail. They're an essential step in your university journey.

We're offering two Virtual Applicant Days this year. The first took place on 27 February and the second is scheduled for 20 March.

At your Virtual Applicant Day you'll be able to:

  • Learn more about the course you've applied for
  • Take part in virtual taster lectures and interactive workshops to experience your course at ARU
  • Speak to tutors and academics
  • Take virtual guided tours of our campuses
  • Speak to current students about their experiences
  • Meet your future classmates digitally and start making friends
  • Find out more about finance
  • See examples of student accommodation and hear about our accommodation guarantee
  • Get your admissions queries answered
