We can offer taster days, subject talks, and a variety of other services including our main open day events. We also attend UCAS fairs all around the UK.

Taster days

Taster days give prospective students the chance to sample the degree subjects they are considering by meeting academic staff and taking part in fun, interactive tasks and mini lectures. They are an opportunity to visit the academic departments and facilities that you are interested in, outside of our general open days.

Our taster days have proved popluar with hundreds of learners who have attended so far. We also receive regular feeback, some of which features at the bottom of this page.

  • improve their understanding of the courses on offer in higher education
  • ask questions about student facilities, study skills, support for additional needs, disabled students allowance, scholarships and bursaries
  • increase student motivation
  • gain hands-on experience of courses and facilities, for example Forensic Science, Studio Recording, Theatre and Performance and Sport

Our students really enjoyed their trip to Wrexham Glyndŵr forensics department. They got a lot out of the crime scene analysis and the forensic anthropology lecture really opened their eyes.
I appreciate having links with Wrexham Glyndŵr. I think that it is essential that we can inspire  and enthuse our students to progress on to university.
Rupert Boyle, Forensic Science Course Leader, Walford & North Shropshire College
The students were exhausted but very motivated on their way back home.  I feel that the visit was very beneficial and I may arrange to come again in the near future. Thanks very much for the welcome.  It was an excellent day. Thanks so much.
Coleg Meiron Dwyfor, Health and Social Science Day
We were made to feel very welcome and the students were very interested in the introduction to the history and development of  complementary therapies. They also learnt about the classification of a range of therapies.
A practical session was then enjoyed by all. Reflexology was the chosen therapy and the students were given the choice of trying this therapy on the feet or hands. Hand Reflexology was opted for and all students experienced the effects of massaging the hands to benefit the whole body.
This was a very well organised visit and all students benefitted from the experience.
