What to expect at our campus Applicant Days. 

Your Applicant Day programme

See your example Applicant Day programme, listed alphabetically below, for an idea of what to expect on the day.

Your Applicant Day programme might not have exactly the same name as your course, so take a look at your invitation email to find out which programme is yours. For example, if you have an offer to study Business, you'll need to find the Norwich Business School programme, which can be found under 'N'.

When you arrive on campus for your Applicant Day, head to check-in and we will provide a more detailed programme, with exact locations, times and session content for the day, along with a campus map to help you find your way around. There will be staff and student ambassadors to accompany you to your sessions from the check-in area, so you don't need to worry about finding your way.
