Once you have applied to study with us, you will be invited to a visit day. Whether you get invited before or after your offer will depend on the subject that you have applied to study.
A visit day is a fantastic opportunity for you to see what a degree at Southampton has to offer and what studying at the University is really like.
During the day, you could have one-to-one chats with your future lecturers, find out about subject-specific content from your chosen course, attend a taster lecture to gain first-hand experience of learning, enjoy a campus and/or accommodation tour and chat to current students about their experiences.
If you cannot make a scheduled visit day, you may be able to arrange a visit. Contact the academic unit that you are applying to - contact details can be found on our website.
Along with your visit day invitation you will receive an information pack containing maps, a timetable of the day, parking permits and a brochure from your subject area.
There are plenty of places to stay and visit during your visit to Southampton. To help you plan your visit, we have created a Google map with some recommendations of hotels, restaurants, bars and attractions.
Having the opportunity to hear the detail of the course I am interested in and ask questions of the tutor. I also really enjoyed speaking to current students, seeing their enthusiasm and creativity really inspired me.
