University of Derby Applicant Days

What is an Applicant Day?

Our Applicant Days give you a taste of what it is like to study at Derby. They are tailored events for students who have applied and received an offer from us. If this applies to you, we will send you an exclusive invitation to an Applicant Day, which will take place between January and April.

You will get the chance to explore your subject in more depth and really get to know us and what it feels like to study here.

We will also have people on hand to answer any of your questions. You may have already visited us at one of our Open Days but the questions you have now may be very different.

Interview Days

If you have applied to one of our courses that requires an interview, you will receive an invitation to attend an interview prior to being made an offer. Your invitation will explain what this will involve and any preparation you will need to do in advance of the day. Courses that may require you to come for an interview include those in Art and DesignHealth, Social and Community Work, and Working with Children and Young People subjects.
