Book your place on an Applicant Visit Day

Our Applicant Visit Days are the perfect opportunity for you to discover more about the course you could be studying and the place where you could be living for the next three or four years.

Thinking about studying at Sussex but haven’t applied yet?

Whilst our Applicant Visit Days are designed for current applicants, we know that some students apply later for various reasons. If you know what subject you’re interested in studying this year come and join us at one of our Applicant Visit Days.

You’ll be able to spend time in your subject’s department for your subject, meet current students and academics and hear more about the content of your course. You’ll have time to ask as many questions as you like to make sure you get a real feel for your course.

  • book your place on a range of dates from February to April 2024. Check available dates when you book
  • the day begins at 10am, but we will be welcoming applicants for registration from 9am. The day ends at 3:30pm
  • our Applicant Visit Days will take place at our campus. Find out how to get to the campus. We’ll be back in touch nearer the time with more information on how to register on the day
  • guests are welcome to join you on the day and there will be some specific information sessions for them too

Have lunch on us

We’ll provide you and your guests with a £5 lunch voucher each to redeem towards food and drinks in our campus cafes and restaurants on the day. There’s lots of choice: from sandwiches and hot meals to sweet treats and barista-quality hot drinks.
