Subject-specific taster days

Our free subject-specific taster days allow sixth form and college students to get to grips with a subject at undergraduate level. 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. 

Applications for 2019 taster days are now closed. 

Attendance and cancellation information

To allow you to get the most from the experience, you'll need to be available for the whole day. Please check your availability before completing an application.

If you’ve been offered a place but can no longer come, you’ll need to let us know as soon as you can by emailing us at It is essential that we know if you're not able to attend so that we can offer your place to another student.

Group bookings 

Unfortunately we are unable to accept school groups on these events. Taster days are suitable for individuals, and are application only. There are lots of other ways for your school to engage with the University of Surrey, including booking a presentation or workshop or attending a campus visit
