Taster Week

Throughout the year, we run Postgraduate Taster Weeks which give you a chance to try out some degree course materials, get some feedback, and take part in some live events. This is a great opportunity to see if our way of teaching is right for you. You will have access to content selected from every degree course, so no matter which of our degrees you are interested in, we encourage you to come along.

The Postgraduate Taster Week is available to anyone that has paid the application fee, which can be found at the end of the 'Postgraduate Application Pack'. More information on this later.

When is Taster Week?

Our next taster week is scheduled for:

Monday July 19th - Friday July 23rd

Whilst this is a week long event, you are not required to show up to all events. Closer to Taster Week there will be a schedule available with links to Zoom webinars for the live events. This schedule will be included in the 'Degree Application and Taster Week' course you receive after paying the application fee.

What is Taster Week?

Taster Week consists of three main components - Feedback sessions, live webinars, and course materials.

Once you have paid the Application Fee, you will receive a course on your student account called 'Degree Application and Taster Week'. This course contains select materials from each of our degree programs. Here you will find videos, texts, and assignments which you can download.

The live webinars and feedback sessions (seen in the accompanying schedule on this page) are bookable via Zoom. You are welcome to attend any webinar, regardless of whether it is directly related to the course you are interested in studying.

Feedback sessions take place at the start and end of Taster Week. You will find information on how to submit your work in the 'Degree Application and Taster Week' course, so please make sure you have read all the information about Taster Week in that course and on this page.

Overall, Taster Week is a chance for us to meet you, and for you to see how we work and if it's right for you.
