What is an Offer Holder Day?

Offer Holder Days are invite-only events for students who have made an application to the University of Plymouth and are holding an offer with us, either conditional or unconditional.
The experience is subject specific and tailored to give you the chance to explore your chosen course and the University in much more detail.

What happens after I book on to an Offer Holder Day?

Once you have booked your place, we will keep in regular contact with you via email to provide you with all of the details needed for your event. You will be emailed a copy of the programme one week before to help you plan your visit.

I’ve already been to an Open Day – why should I attend an Offer Holder Day?

Given that you are much further on with your university application, it’s likely that you’ll have questions that will differ from the ones you had before making your application and initial choices.
Offer Holder Days are invite-only events that give you the opportunity to attend course-specific activities and spend more time with future classmates, course leads and academics who will be teaching you. The day will give you the perfect opportunity to decide whether the course, university and city are the best fit for you as an individual.
You'll experience in-depth course lectures, sessions and activities that were not available in such detail at our Open Days. We understand that as well as the course, you also need to explore the University itself so we have our Accommodation Team, Student Ambassadors, Admissions Team and Student Support Services on campus, to allow you to discuss any individual requirements specific to you alongside subject specific activities.

Can’t attend one of our Offer Holder Days?

If you are unable to attend one of our Offer Holder Days, please don’t worry! We are hosting bespoke applicant campus visits in April and May, giving you the opportunity to visit the campus, find out more about your programme and discuss life at the University of Plymouth with one of our current students.
If you are unable to attend any of the applicant campus visit days, please email us at and we will be happy to advise further.
