Benefits of attending a taster session

Our taster days are a great way to turn any concerns you have into excitement! The purpose is to give you a more focused experience, which is tailored to the course and department you have applied for. You will have the chance to meet your course tutors, as well as current students, and experience what it would be like to study your chosen course at Reading College!

Attending our taster sessions allows you to try before you decide to join us in September! You'll be able to experience student life at Reading College, and help you make an informed decision. Even if you decide not to join us, that's still beneficial!

You'll have access to all our amazing facilities on offer, including our computer suites, media and photography studios, laboratories and much more!

You'll be able to speak to current students about student life at college, and find out more about your course from our teachers.

You probably have lots of questions, so what better time to ask them!

We ask that parents do not attend taster sessions, to allow prospective students to experience the independent study environment we offer!
