What are Taster Days?
UEL’s free taster
days is a great way to get a taste of what it is like to study a course you’re

- INSPIRE: View our industry-standard facilities
and excellent resources. Speak to our
inspiring students and teaching staff.
- ENGAGE: Challenge your knowledge – work on a project linked to a career in the subject area of your choice

refreshments throughout the day.
