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, some practical workshops, a campus tour and the opportunity to talk to staff and current students.

Details of our events in 2017 will be confirmed shortly.

Who to contact

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.
