What is an Applicant Taster Day?
An Applicant Taster Day is more in-depth than an Open Day and gives you a more tailored experience. You’ll find out more about your course and hear about the student experience through taster sessions and opportunities to meet academic staff and current students. You will also have an opportunity to view our accommodation and chat to our support services.
If you have already been to an Open Day, this is your chance to explore your course and subject area in more detail and if not, you’ll get an in-depth introduction to studying here.
What to expect on the day
Here are some of the things you'll be able to see and do during your Applicant Taster Day:
