Undergraduate Taster Days

Following Government advice to limit all non-essential gatherings as a result of the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), our Taster Days scheduled for June may not go ahead. We are currently monitoring the situation and will inform all those who have registered when we learn more. We understand this may come as a disappointment to some students, so we have set up a Virtual and Online events page.  You can keep up to date with the college, come for a tour and talk to our recruitment team, all whist saying safe at home.

Our Undergraduate Taster Days are the very best way to experience what it might be like to study your chosen subject at degree level. You’ll experience lectures by our world-class academics, get to chat with our student ambassadors and take part in a personal statement workshop. The day will start at 11:00 am and will finish at around 3.30 pm.

Our Undergraduate Taster Days are offered at no cost and are held in our stunning Grade I listed Georgian building which is located in the heart of Bloomsbury, London. We are only 250 metres from Tottenham Court Road tube station.

Our Taster Days for 2019 have now passed. The next series of Taster Days will be held in June 2020. Details will be announced in Spring 2020. Please use the form below to register your interest for our future taster days and we will notify you when they become available.
