Students in Alexandra Square

Applicant Visit Days

When you've applied to Lancaster, an Applicant Visit gives you an opportunity to visit campus and learn more about your chosen subject. 

What is an Applicant Visit Day?

Applicant Visit Days are different from Open Days and Campus tours. They are designed for those who have already been offered a place at Lancaster, or are invited for an interview prior to an offer being made.

Applicant Visit Days give you the opportunity to:

  • Find out about your chosen course in a greater depth
  • Speak to staff and current students and find answers to any outstanding questions you may still have about life at Lancaster.
  • Find out more about finances and student support
  • Take a tour of campus facilities and accommodation.

Your department may also invite you to attend an interview as part of your Applicant Visit Day

Once you have been offered a place at Lancaster, or if you are required to attend for an interview prior to an offer being made, instructions for registering your place at an Applicant Visit Day will be emailed to you directly, and can also be found below. If you have any questions about the day you can speak to your department using their contact details, which can be found on our course information pages.
