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.

Our Applicant Visiting Days are held between 10am to 4pm on the following dates: 

  • Wednesday 15th February 2017
  • Saturday 18th February 2017
  • Saturday 4th March 2017
  • Saturday 25th March 2017
