Taste of University is our residential Summer School event, and the ideal opportunity to experience what being a university student is like.

The event is designed specifically for people who are in Year 12, or those studying the first year of a Level 3 qualification in college. We will support you as you find out about the opportunities available at university, and how to find and apply for them too.

Across three days and nights in our accommodation you will meet current students and lecturers, explore campus life, and you'll also get the opportunity to put your questions to our expert advisers. Most importantly, you’ll have a great time too.
