Subject conferences

Subject conferences are designed for Year 12 students and mature applicants to give an insight into specific subject areas at York. Subject conferences give students the chance to explore a particular subject in depth and to get 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.

Taster days 

Taster days are aimed at Year 12 students, giving them the chance to try out a variety of subjects within one facility and to experience what studying at university will involve.

Students who come to taster days will attend sample lectures, tour the main University campus, and meet current students who are studying relevant subjects.

The next taster days will run in 2019. Further information will be available in spring 2019.

If you have any questions about taster days or would like further information, please email tasterdays@york.ac.uk or call + 44 (0)1904 323529.
