Taster Days, Summer Schools & Careers Events

Many universities and employers offer prospective students the opportunity to take part in taster days or summer schools to give you some idea of what studying a particular subject at university involves or insight into a particular career. These types of events are generally free but you must pre-register and book yourself on to attend. Some events are heavily over-subscribed so you should always try to apply as early as possible.
