Still looking at your options?

Not 100% sure you have applied for the right course? Struggling with subject choices? Then why not speak to a course specialist at our Open Event on 28 April!

As part of the next open event, you can book a 1:2:1 chat with a subject lecturer. This could be really useful if you would like more specific course details to help with your decision. Maybe you are not sure which A-level subjects to choose, or you just want a second chat with a vocational course tutor to make sure you are 100% happy with your course choice.
