Booking a subject taster day
We are excited to be able to invite you onto campus to take part in our subject taster days. These events give students the opportunity to:
- attend introduction and taster sessions in their chosen subject
- explore how school and university subjects relate to different career paths
- find out about the facilities, accommodation and campus Edge Hill University has to offer
- receive general higher education information
- speak to current students and staff
- ask any questions they may have.
The clear link with careers means our subject taster days can make a useful contribution to a school or college’s gatsby benchmarks. These events provide opportunities for deeper engagement with the subject, enhancing A Level or BTEC study and enabling students to make an informed choice about higher education.
