Student Advice Day - Wednesday, 4 June, C Lecture Theatre Block - Mezzanine Floor

The College of Science will be running an ADVICE DAY on Wednesday 4 June, from 9.30am until 2pm.

We will be located on the Mezzanine Floor (Level 2) of the C Lecture Theatre block, and all departments that feed into the BSc degree structure will be represented. It’s a great opportunity to meet with departments on a one to one basis and get some course advice.
