This Taster Day offers students a taste of college life and what it's like to study again. Many of our students have used this day as a stepping stone to further study.

The Taster Day will include lectures, information sessions and activities. Experienced staff and current mature students will be on hand to offer support and contribute throughout the day. There will be information relating to application procedures for college, financial support, programmes of study and student support information. 

Nervous about College?

Although mature students can face obstacles, especially if re-entering the system after a prolonged absence from formal education, many students who study at the Institute have shown that these can be overcome.

Mature students have a wealth of knowledge and experience with which they make a valuable contribution.

Further study options include:

Undergraduate study 

Postgraduate study

Part-time study
