The Your Future Degree Taster Days are an amazing opportunity for you to gain a wealth of information to make informed decisions about your next steps into University.

If you are in sixth form school or college, year 12/FE1 and Year 13/FE 2 the sessions can support you with choosing a degree course that’s right for you and completing your UCAS applications!

There are three subjects to choose from on this Your Future Degree Taster Day, so come along to our AM session (10:30-12:00pm), our PM session (12:15-2:30pm), or both to sample up to two degree subjects!

You’ll then be HE Ready, Future Ready, Career Ready!

Public Health: How do diseases spread?

In this one-hour session, we will share a short introduction to our Public Health degree programmes to get you started on your career trajectory.  Then we will break out into small groups for you to think through some of the key health challenges facing us today - from the pandemic of COVID-19 to the ongoing epidemics of food insecurity, diabetes, obesity, cardio-vascular diseases. We will explore what's really causing these diseases and their spread, why they are public health challenges, and how we can work to overcome them. It will be an exciting session to get inspired and be motivated about your future, in Public Health.

Sport: Teaching with Sport

Students will take part in an interactive session to learn more about teaching with the sport and exercise sciences. The session will focus on students identifying the key skills required in a range of different sports. Students will then work in groups to design activities which could be used to help develop these key sporting skills. 

Biomedical Sciences: Diagnostic Testing

Biomedical Sciences is a great degree choice if you’re interested in medicine and health. Come along to our taster where you’ll get to step into the shoes of a medical professional and walk through the process of diagnosing a patient. Order the relevant tests and analyse the results to find out the best course of treatment for your patients!
