Subject taster days

We’re excited to be able to invite you onto campus to take part in our subject taster days, which usually take place during both the Autumn and Spring/Summer terms.

These events give sixth form and college 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 Edge Hill University’s facilities, accommodation and campus
  • find out more about higher education
  • 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.

Further information, dates and booking links for individuals and school and colleges groups are in the table below.

“The taster day helped me to make a decision on what to study and also boosted my confidence.”
