This year, HEON is running multiple independent Higher Education Taster Days for Year 9 students hosted by our partner institutions, each designed to introduce students to university life and provide impartial information, advice and guidance about higher education.
What is it?
Our fun and interactive Year 9 Higher Education Taster Days are designed to allow 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. This will also be accompanied by information, advice and guidance about Higher Education.
What do you need to know?
We have already run two Year 9 Higher Education Tasters this academic year, with five more planned before the end of the summer term. All of these events are for students currently in Year 9, and will have similar content. Please get in touch for more information.

Eligibility will be determined by the student's postcode. You can use our postcode tool here to check whether your student is eligible:
