Subject Taster Days

Our Subject Taster Days give students the opportunity to:

  • Meet experienced academics and take part in workshops and lectures in a subject of interest
  • Learn about student life from current student guides
  • Find out how schools and university subjects relate to different career paths
  • Experience state-of-the-art university facilities

The clear link with careers means our Taster Days can make a useful contribution to a school or college’s Careers Education and Information, Advice and Guidance offer.

These events provide opportunities for deeper engagement with the subject, enhancing A Level study and enabling students to make an informed choice about Higher Education.

The events are free of charge, include complimentary lunch and are open to post-16 students.

If you are a teacher or careers adviser and would like to bring a group of students to  one of our Subject Taster Days please email the Education Liaison Officer responsible for your region, email or fill out the booking form below.
