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.
