Congratulations if you've received an offer from us! Your next step is to attend a visit day. A visit day is your opportunity to get to know us better.
You're likely to receive an introduction from your department, information about your course in the form of a talk, mini-lecture or Q&A and a tour of the department/campus. In addition to meeting staff, you'll also meet current students.
If you're bringing a parent, guardian or carer, they should attend our guest programme, which includes a Q and A session and a campus tour.
When do they take place?
Our visit days take place between January and April. Arrangements vary by department. If you're required to attend an interview you may not need to attend a separate visit day. Interview days often include similar activities to help you get to know your department better and explore the campus.
Check the arrangements for your department and book your place on You@York.

I have been to an Open Day – should I come to a visit day?
Yes, you’ll spend the afternoon with your department getting to know them better. Chat to them about studying at York and ask any course related questions you may have. You’ll also meet other offer holders who may become your future course mates!
Staff will also be on hand in the morning to answer any additional questions about accommodation, careers support, study abroad opportunities and disability support.
It is likely that now you have an offer, you have different questions for staff and students than you did at an Open Day.
Can I visit accommodation?
Yes! A range of accommodation will be available to view on the day. The accommodation team will also be on hand to answer any questions you have. More information will be available in your programme which you will receive about two weeks before the event.
Can I get my travel reimbursed?
If your application is eligible to be considered under the University's Contextual Offer policy, you could be eligible for a travel bursary which means your travel costs to and from post offer visit days and interviews could be paid back to you once you've made a claim.
