What is an Applicant Taster Day?
An Applicant Taster Day (ATD) is your chance to come and meet your course staff and current students, to look around the facilities and accommodation, and to get a feel for what studying at BCU will be like. For some courses attending an ATD is a mandatory part of receiving an offer, and some ATDs may include an interview.
