What happens at an Offer Holder Day?

You’ll spend more time focusing on your course so you can ask in-depth questions about modules and find out what it’s really like to study here. You’ll also have the chance to take a tour of the fantastic department facilities, the campus and visit our on-campus accommodation.

There will also be an Information and Advice Zone, where you can talk to experts from our student support services, including Admissions, Accommodation and Disability Services.

How do I register for an Offer Holder Day?

If your course offers an Offer Holder Day, we’ll send an email invitation to your Welcome portal after we make you an offer, so be sure to check this regularly. We recommend that you register for your Offer Holder Day as soon as possible, as places fill up very quickly. After you register, we’ll send your Offer Holder Day information to your Welcome portal nearer the date.

On the day

How to I get to UWE Bristol?

Our Offer Holder Days are based at our Frenchay Campus, except for the Journalism Offer Holder Day, which is held at our City Campus at Bower Ashton Studios.

We’ll mail you with more information about the programme, travel and parking the week before your Offer Holder Day. If you're planning to travel by train you can get 20% off GWR Advance Purchase tickets to Bristol Temple Meads or Bristol Parkway.

Can I bring guests with me?

You’re welcome to bring along up to two guests. There is a separate programme of events created specifically for guests if they would like to join in.

What should I bring on the day?

Yourself – and your questions. Practically speaking, all you need to bring is a pen and a pad and we’ll provide everything else that you need.

Are refreshments available on the day?

We’ll provide refreshments throughout the day. You’ll also be able to buy drinks and snacks from our shops and cafes on campus.

I have access requirements, who do I need to contact?

If you or a guest have any access requirements, please email us at open@uwe.ac.uk before the event so we can make any necessary arrangements for you.

Is parking available and do I need to register on arrival?

Yes, parking is available. We’ll send you all the information that you’ll need about parking and registering nearer your Offer Holder Day.

Unable to attend an Offer Holder day

  • If you’ve registered to attend but are no longer able to attend, please login to your UWE Welcome Portal where you will be able to cancel or look for an alternative date to attend.
  • You can only attend one Offer Holder day per course on any one day. However, if you’ve applied for more than one course you’re very welcome to attend on multiple days (one Offer Holder day for each course). Please note that if you have applied for a degree which offers a foundation programme and the degree, the programme for the day will be the same, so there is no need to sign up for both.
  • Signing up for an Offer Holder day does not affect your offer. Whether you come along or not, it won’t have any impact on the offer we make you.
  • If you’ve received an invite but all the dates are full, please email us at open@uwe.ac.uk and we’ll add you to our waiting list.
