Subject Conferences and Taster Days

Taster Days

Last year our Taster Days included:

  • Discover History
  • Digital Age Technologies
  • 21st Century Science
  • Love Learning Languages
  • Crime and Politics

Taster Days give Year 12 and mature students the opportunity to find out about subjects they could study and the careers to which they might lead. You'll take part in three mini-lectures, meet our staff and students, hear about student life and tour our campus.

Taster Days take place in March each year. Online bookings open in early spring.

Please note: A Taster Day is not a university-wide Open Day. Find out more about Open Days.

Subject Conferences

Subject Conferences give Year 12 and mature students the chance to explore a particular subject in depth and have a taste of what it is like to study at York. The day includes lectures, practical workshops, a campus tour and the opportunity to talk to staff and current students.

Upcoming events

Taster Days and Subject Conferences take place in March.

  • Bookings will open in January. Details will be available here.

Please note: A Subject Taster Day is not a university-wide Open Day. Subject conferences are an insight into the subject areas and students will not necessarily get to visit facilities associated with their subject. Taster Days are solely for students or school/college groups - family members will not be able to participate in the programme. See Open Days for further information about University of York Open Days.
