Postgraduate taster session registration

A postgraduate course can help you gain a competitive edge in the job market  and boost your earning potential. If you'd like to gain a real insight into postgraduate study why not come along to one of our taster sessions.

What do taster sessions involve?

The taster sessions will take place at the University and will follow varying formats, but will last around two hours. In most cases the course leader will run the session and give you detailed information about the course, perhaps involving an interactive group session covering elements of the modules you may study. The sessions also offer you an opportunity to ask questions about the course and investigate potential career directions.

'I was impressed by the energy and passionate commitment of the academic staff, and I thoroughly enjoyed the sample seminar I took part in.'
