“The open event helped establish how supportive the staff and university would be. I had a good chat with a lecturer about my future career aspirations and how this course might help me. I left with a good feeling about the university and the course.”

Unable to attend? Interested in postgraduate research? Meet the Lecturer

If you can’t make it to an open event or you’d like more information about postgraduate research opportunities, why not book an informal video chat or call with one of our postgraduate academic experts at a Meet the Lecturer session. You’ll get to speak to someone face-to-face and receive expert answers to all your questions.

Live overseas?

If you can’t make our open events on campus, you can access our virtual tours on demand. You may also find it useful to look at our information for international students or check for agents in your country.

The open event enabled me to discuss more comprehensively about the course. This one-to-one conversation encouraged me to apply.
