University taster days

Taster days are designed for students who are thinking about studying at the University of Worcester.
Students socialise in a coffee shop

We offer a range of taster days from subject specific days to general university life taster days, with an emphasis on what to expect from the University of Worcester.

Top tips for your students who are attending a Taster Day

  • Students don’t have to be an expert or have any prior experience in the subject     
  • Students can state that they have attended a taster day in their personal statement, this is a great way to show they have researched the university in more detail      
  • The students are able visit the campus and learn more about what we have to offer       
  • Remind them to bring a packed lunch or money to spend at the cafes on campus
