This taster day will give you an insight into the University of Surrey’s criminology course.


University of Surrey
  • This event is open to Year 12 students only (on an individual basis). 
  • The deadline for applications is 9 June 2019, however, applications may close earlier depending on demand.
  • Please note that taster days and dates are subject to change. 

About the taster day

On a taster day, you'll experience the excellent teaching and facilities available at the University while exploring what it is like to study BSc Criminology.

As well as academic sessions, there will be plenty of opportunities to engage with our friendly student ambassadors and academic staff to find out what studying here is really like.  

No prior knowledge of criminology is required. 

We accept: 

  • A-levels - you should be working between BBC - ABB level and may be required to be taking a particular subject at A-level.
  • International Baccalaureate (IB) - if you are studying IB, you should be working at around an overall score of 32 and may be required to be taking a particular subject. 
  • BTEC - we can accept BTEC qualifications. Depending on the course, these may need to be studied alongside a combination of A-Levels. 

If you have any questions about your qualifications and whether they meet taster day requirements, or if you are studying alternative qualifications please don't hesitate to contact us

Lunch is provided on every taster day and we endeavour to cater for students with a variety of dietary requirements. We will ask you for more information about any specific requirements you have prior to the taster day.

Travel bursaries may be available for eligible students. All applications will be assessed against our eligibility criteria.

You may need to take a day off school/college to attend a taster day. Usually, sixth form and college students have up to five days that they are able to take off to attend things like taster days, residential programmes and open days. Your teacher will be able to tell you the policy at your school. We are happy to confirm your attendance with your teacher after the taster day – they’ll just need to email us at tasters@surrey.ac.uk.
