Applicant Days 2020


  • Saturday 7 March - 10am - 4pm

Now that you’re a few short steps away from starting university, we know you’ve got some big decisions to make. Our Applicant Days are a great way to help you make the right decision when choosing where to study in September.

On the day, you’ll be able to meet staff and current students in your department, participate in workshops/taster lectures, get a taste of your course and explore the campus with other potential classmates. It’s an excellent way to get a feel for what it's like to live and study at Chichester and decide if it’s the right University for you.

Our Applicant Days are run by our non-interviewing subject areas:

  • Business School
  • Creative and Digital Technologies
  • Early Childhood (BA (Hons) route only)
  • Engineering and Product Design
  • English and Creative Writing
  • History and Politics
  • Institute of Sport
  • Law
  • Philosophy, Theology and Religion
  • Psychology 

If you have any questions or specific requirements about your Applicant Day, email us at and we will be happy to help.

If your subject area is not listed on this page, you might need to attend an interview instead. Take a look at our Interview page to find out more. If you are unsure, please contact us using the email address above.

Am I allowed to bring my parents or a friend with me?

Absolutely! In some sessions you may be split from parents or friends as some courses run separate talks/practical workshops to ensure everyone receives relevant information/due to room capacities.

What do I need to bring?

A notepad is handy to jot any notes down from the day. 

What will happen on the day?

Your day will be planned and ran by your department. You’ll receive more information when you’ve received your invitation and booked your place. If you haven’t received an invite but you’ve been offered a place from one of the departments listed, please email

Can I park on campus?

You will be given a parking permit on arrival. If the car park is full on either campus here are the closest local car parks for each campus, both are pay and display.

Chichester: Oaklands Pavilion -  Chichester Rugby Football Club Car Park, PO19 6BB
Bognor Regis: London Road, PO21 1BA

What do I need to wear?

You won’t need any special clothing for your Applicant Day, just wear something casual and comfy.  If you are looking at a sport based subject, it would be a good idea to wear something you can move easily in.

A lecture or a seminar - what's the difference?

A lecture is a group session where the lecturer will talk through a presentation and you can take notes and ask any questions.  A seminar is less formal, where you might be given an activity to complete in a group or set a task to do with a partner.

Will this Applicant Day affect my application?

No, the Applicant Days are a chance for you to meet the lecturers and try out being a student at Chichester for a day.  If you can’t attend a session this will not affect your application either. 

What happens if I can’t attend?

If you can’t make it to your Applicant Day, don’t panic. Contact us at giving your name, what course you were interested in and if you would be interested in attending another date, campus tour or open day.
