Social Sciences Applicant Taster Days

Activities on the Day

Here is a brief overview of the kinds of activities you can expect to take part in during your day.

You will be given an overview of the benefits provided by the School, course structures (including modules), and the range of opportunities available to you to ensure the rapid development of your professional skills and knowledge. 

For all courses the following activities will take place during the day:

Taster Lecture (applicants only)

Experience a taster lecture on an interesting issue. This will give you the opportunity to gain an insight into what it’s like to study a social science degree at Birmingham City University.

Interactive Workshop (applicants only)

This workshop will mirror some of the teaching strategies that are implemented on the course and give applicants a taster of the sort of work they will be involved with on the course.

Q&A session with staff and students

Applicants and parents will have the opportunity to ask any questions about the University, the School and the courses. Current students will explain what employability and travel opportunities the University and School of Social Sciences have to offer throughout your course.
