Open Days and Post-offer Visit Days

If you're thinking of applying to study Computer Science at the University of York, you might like to come and take a look around the Department and University.

The University holds a number of Open Days each year, giving you a chance to meet members of academic staff, admissions staff and current students. It's an opportunity to see where you might spend the next few years studying, ask any questions about the course or applying, and quiz current students on what life is really like at York!

If you then choose to apply to study with us - and we are impressed by your grades, personal statement and references - we will recommend you for an offer. You will be invited to attend an Post-offer Visit Day which gives you the opportunity to get to know us better.

Open Days

What happens at the University Open Days?

We hold a number of University-wide Open Days each year, where our staff and current students are on hand to offer information and answer questions about admissions, degree programmes and student life. 

On the day, you can attend talks about what it's like to study Computer Science at York, and receive application advice from our Admissions Tutor. We also hold a mini-lecture, giving a real taste of our teaching, as well as tours and demos around the building. Our demos are given by current students, often about projects they are working on, so you get to see exactly the sort of thing you'll be learning at York.

Please visit the University of York Open Days page for current dates, details about how to register to attend, and other ways that you can meet us.

Post Offer Visit Days

What happens at the Post Offer Visit Days?

If you choose to apply to study with us - and we are impressed by your grades, personal statement and references - we will recommend you for an offer. You will be invited to attend an Post Offer Visit Day giving you the chance to get to know us better.

The Post Offer Visit Day is important in helping you to decide which university you choose to attend. Our Visit Days give you an opportunity to meet with current students and lecturers. You will hear more about what we offer, as well as student perspectives on the course, the year in industry and life at York. 

You will go on a departmental tour with one of our student ambassadors to see some demonstrations of student lab work and current research. There is also a guided tour of the University of York Campus East with some of our current students, with the opportunity to see one of their study bedrooms.

Throughout the day, our staff and students are on hand to answer any questions you might have about life at York, including about our degree courses, the University, accommodation and the City of York itself.  

Your parents and family are welcome to attend with you on the day, so they too can see the place where you might be spending the next few years of your life.
