Offer-holder days for Physics Offer Holders

Open Day outside George GreenAll applicants whose UCAS application meets our requirements will be invited to attend one of our Physics offer-holder days. During the day you will have the opportunity to meet with a member of academic staff to discuss your application. Your entry requirements offer will be confirmed at that meeting. The meeting will also play an important role in the event of a “near miss” situation, i.e. if you do not quite attain the grade requirements of your offer.

Our offer-holder days are held on Wednesdays in November, December, February, and March.
