Aston taster sessions
Our taster sessions provide stimulating workshops from Aston University academics at the forefront of their subject area. These sessions offer a great opportunity for Year 12 – 13 and Level 3 students to enrich their current studies and to discover more about studying at university. The events not only allow students to explore their chosen subject area, but also the opportunity to meet our current undergraduate students to find out more about university life. 

This year, we will be running taster sessions across all five of our academic schools. Students are more than welcome to book on to these events individually and attend without teacher supervision but please make sure that you have read and understood our cancellation policy for these events.
