Experience University Centre Reaseheath at our Taster Day

Friday 25 November, 9am – 4pm

Whether you already know what you want to do in the future, or you are looking for some inspiration, we would love to welcome you to UCR to try some amazing taster sessions at our upcoming Taster Day.

Throughout the day you will be able to attend up to three sessions from a variety of our course areas, similar to those you will experience as a student at University Centre Reaseheath, including:

In between your taster sessions, lecturers and staff from our accommodation, transport and support services will also be on hand to answer any questions you have about studying at UCR. Drinks and snacks will be available to purchase in our Courtyard cafe. You will also be able to take a guided tour of our campus and accommodation.

Take a step to finding your purpose today by booking your place on our Taster Day. We look forward to showing you how we will equip you with the skills you need to grow, progress, and become a leader within one of the land-based industries. It’s in our nature.

    We have limited numbers on all subject talks. If the subject area you are interested in attending is greyed out this means that we have reached our capacity and cannot accept anymore bookings for that area. Please do not book an area you are not interested in as this only will prevent others who are interested in that area being able to book.
