How do I cancel my booking?

If you are no longer able to attend, please email and let us know that you wish to cancel your booking, along with the email address you used to book your place. We will then email you to confirm we have cancelled your booking.

I haven’t applied yet, can I still visit?

Yes, the Visit Days are open to both applicants and non-applicants. The Visit Days have been designed with applicants in mind so if you have a clear idea of the subject you would like to study then this is a good event to attend.

I can’t see my subject on the list, what should I do?

If you have applied or are thinking of applying for Musical Theatre or Primary Education (5-11) with QTS then these subjects have an audition/interview day as part of the application process where applicants can find out about University Centre Shrewsbury and the course on the day as well as taking part in the interview. Once you have submitted your application for either of these courses you will be notified as to whether or not you have been invited to audition/interview.

If you are looking for a different undergraduate course but can't see it on the list please email:

Where does the Visit Day take place?

The location of your Visit Day sessions will be at our Guildhall building.

What is the difference between a Visit Day and an Open Day or Interview Day?

You may have already attended an Open Day prior to making your application. Visit Days are events for successful applicants who have received an offer, but also for people who have a clear idea of what they would like to study but haven’t yet made an application. The events are tailored days designed to help you find out more about your course, view facilities and help you decide whether to make University Centre Shrewsbury your Firm or Insurance choice.

Which Visit Day should I be booking onto?

We have different dates available, so it’s a case of whichever date is most convenient for you. While we have all courses represented at most Visit Days, it’s worth double checking that your course is available from the drop down list before planning your visit. In some cases a course may be unavailable on a specific date and it is worth trying to attend an alternative date.

I have booked onto a Visit Day but can no longer make that date, although I would like to attend another Visit Day. How do I change the date on my booking?

You will not be able to change the date of your booking, but we can instead cancel your current booking. Then all you need to do is book onto another Visit Day. To cancel your booking simply email

What if I can't attend any of the Visit Days for my chosen subject?

As an alternative to Visit Days we offer campus tours on an ad-hoc basis on weekdays. To find out more and book onto a tour please email and let us know that you can't make the Visit Days and we will get back to you to arrange a campus tour.

However, we do recommend that you visit on an Visit Day, if possible, as you will have the opportunity to not only visit the campus but to find out more about your course, the facilities, student finance, accommodation and student life in general. Visit Days also include an opportunity to speak to our student ambassadors who are available to answer any questions about life at the University Centre Shrewsbury.

I can’t make any of the dates but would still like to visit. Is there another event?

There are other opportunities to visit outside of the Visit Days. We would recommend looking at the Campus Tour dates, these run regularly throughout the year and are course specific. You’ll not only get a tour of the campus and the partnership accommodation but you’ll also get to meet with a tutor to talk about the course.
