Prospective students can also attend sessions on machine learning, AI, cyber security, biomedical sciences, circular economies, and get the chance to tour teaching labs and view the latest technology being used to teach crime scene investigation and 3D modelling, among others.

Postgraduate open days will take place on March 13 and March 16, with separate events for health, management, law, social sciences, engineering, computer science, media technology and life sciences.

Claire Pryke, Associate Director of Outreach, Recruitment and Admissions, said: “All our courses are designed to be relevant to the changing demands of industry, so that our graduates stand the best chance of career progression.
