Taster Days

Year 12 / Year 1 college students can experience first-hand what it’s like to study a subject at university through sample lectures or interactive workshops at a Taster Day. Taster Days take place on our campus, where you’ll have the chance to look around and meet students and staff. Suitable for individual and group bookings, those with strong subject interests or the undecided!

We specialise in Education, Teacher Training, ChildhoodEarly Years and Youth and Community Work. Some of our Taster Days give students a broad overview of working with young people to help identify the wide variety of careers that can be achieved. If you already know what career path you'd like to go down we also have more subject specific Taster Days for you to get involved in.
