Introducing the day

Following your application to the University, you'll receive an invitation to an Applicant Visit Day. Your invitation will be sent to you by email with a link to a booking page. You must book to attend.

Visit Days at the University of Southampton are split into two programmes; the flexible morning programme and the subject specific afternoon programmes. You can find out start times and more information for both in their sections below.

If you are required to have an interview as part of your visit we will email you about this.

Central programme - morning

Our optional morning programme will give you the chance to learn more about student life at Southampton. You'll receive a welcome and general overview of the University, undertake a campus tour, and focus on topics such as accommodation and finance. The morning is a flexible programme, so you can attend what you would like to.
