St. Mary’s University College – Taster Sessions


St Mary’s University College would like to offer Year 13 or 14 students the opportunity to attend a ‘Taster’ session during the week of Monday 28th October to Friday 1st November 2019. Tasters will be offered in a variety of subjects and will include attending a lecture in a chosen subject area. They are primarily intended for the following groups: school pupils who missed Open Days and are very unsure about higher education; pupils who are the first in their family to consider HE and who would like to know more; disabled pupils; care experienced young people; mature students; or any pupil who may have additional support needs.  Tasters last approximately 2 hours and participants will have the opportunity to talk to College staff and current students.



Please see below a timetable of lectures available during the week.
