An Applicant Taster Day is more in-depth than an Open Day and gives you a more tailored experience, focused on the course and department you have applied to.

In line with current government guidance, our 2021 Applicant Taster Day events will now be delivered online. We will welcome you on to campus as soon as it is safe to do so, but in the meantime these events are a great opportunity to experience a flavour of student life and ask us your questions.

Here are some of the things you'll be able to see and do during your Virtual Applicant Taster Day:

Learn about student life
