Book your place See programme

Join us on campus to get a taste of why so many people love living and learning at the University of York.

Experience York for yourself on 13 March 2024 between 1pm and 5pm.

Like an open day, but better

We don't just want you to see what postgraduate study at York is like, we want you to experience it. That's why our Masters Taster Day is more than just an invitation to wander around our open campus...

Sign up for our Masters Taster Day for a chance to:

  • meet the academic department you're interested in
  • talk to the people in our student services teams
  • benefit from presentations designed to help you on your postgraduate journey
  • explore our campus.

What you can expect

Explore our campus

Before 1pm

Our Masters Taster Day officially kicks off at 1pm. But, as ever, our campus is open to explore, so why not arrive a little early and have a wander around our parkland campus? If you're lucky, the sun will be shining and the daffodils will be in bloom, with Spring just around the corner. If not, you could grab a bite to eat from one of our many cafes or kitchens.

Meet your department

1pm to 2.30pm

Dive straight into what you're passionate about. From 1pm departments will be hosting sessions designed to help you understand what it's like to study a postgraduate degree with them.

Speak to student services

3pm to 5pm

Head back to Central Hall after your department session for our student services fair. Speak with the people who'll have your back while studying at York; whether you just want to see what's on offer or have specific questions about what we can do to help you.

Get great advice

3.30pm to 5pm

Finish off the day with presentations on topics we've picked especially because we think you might find them useful as a prospective postgraduate student.
