Visiting Days

Once you have applied for a place at Aberystwyth, you will automatically be invited to attend a Visiting Day. While Open Days are general in nature, Visiting Days are more focused on the course and provide an opportunity for you to meet with tutors and current students, and discuss the course in more detail.
