Virtual taster days

Gain a greater insight into courses

Our subject-specific virtual taster days are aimed at sixth form and access students with an interest in studying at undergraduate level.

With each day focused on a specific course, or group of courses, prospective students will gain an insight into their area of interest and have the opportunity to gather further information relating to career choices, graduate opportunities, course availability and entry requirements. They will also have the ability to ask current students their views of studying at University during this unprecedented time.


Meet staff and students

Academic and technical staff will provide interactive talks and demonstrations, and current students will also be available, offering plenty of opportunity for questions about the course, student life and the University in general. Throughout each session prospective students will be able to network with our current students alongside contemporaries with similar interests and career aspirations.

In addition to attending lectures and seminars prospective students will be sent a link inviting them to part take in a virtual campus tour, allowing them to experience our facilities, including laboratories, studios, and even the Students’ Union.


Dates for 2021 are currently under review and will be announced in the new year.
