Year 9 HE Taster Day

Event date: 
Wednesday 13th of February 2019 (All day)

A full day combining information sessions and subject taster activities delivered at any of our partner institutions. The event is designed to introduce students to university life, allowing students to get a taste of different subjects they could study at Higher Education, take a tour of our partner's campus, and meet Student Ambassadors to ask questions about student life. Feedback has shown that these HE Taster Days have a real impact on students' aspirations, independent decision making and confidence that HE could be an option for them.
