Pre-entry Advice Sessions - Your Chance to Find Out More
After you apply for a course at Belfast Met, you will be sent an invitation to attend a Pre-Entry Advice Session.
This is a course information session that will give you the opportunity to:
- Find out more about your course.
- Meet lecturing staff.
- Find out more about study and life at Belfast Met.
- Make sure this is the right course for you.
In 2022, Pre-Entry Advice Sessions will either be at a campus or an online meeting (e.g. via MS Teams), depending on the COVID-19 restrictions at the time.
We would encourage you to attend the Pre-Entry Advice Session for your course to ensure you have all the information you need to help decide that this is the right course for you.
If you decide that the course you have applied for is not right for you, email us at [email protected] up to 7 days after you apply. You can transfer to another course but will keep the date of your original application.
