As of March 2020, you can now directly request a visit to a school with no published calendar. Previously, if a school did not have a calendar published, it was a manual process by BridgeU CSMs to try and arrange the visit. Now, you can request directly.
The process is as follows:
1.) Log into BridgeU Connect as normal
2.) Find the schools you would like to request visits for using the different filters available
3.) Click on the 'Visits & Sessions' tab on a particular school, and the below should appear:
4.) Click on any date or time, and fill in the required information as shown below:
5.) Click send, and the relevant counsellor at this school will receive your message. They can then reply, accept or reject your request.
Please note that as you are requesting a visit to a school that has not published their calendar, they may not accept visits requests that have not given sufficient time. You are free to request a visit to any school at any time, but we would suggest 2 weeks minimum for the highest success rate.
The school has the opportunity to suggest an alternative date/time if your initial request isn't suitable for them. In this case, you'll be notified of their preferred date/time and have the option to request another visit to suit their preference.
BridgeU CSMs are still on hand to facilitate visit requests, and will try to get the visit requested as soon as possible.
