Taster days

The College of Engineering runs bespoke taster days and visits on the Swansea University campus. They are designed to give year 10-12 students information about studying Engineering at university and to help them make informed subject choices for both sixth form and university applications. Each day or visit is run to meet the requirement of the school/college and typically includes:

  • Sample lectures/taster practical sessions on a range of topics
  • Opportunity to meet current students and hear about their study experiences
  • Guided tour of the Swansea University campus
  • Refreshments
  • Sessions usually last between 1.5 hours and 5 hours within the school day

There is no charge for these sessions, but we can only offer limited availability throughout the year. For further information and to express your interest, please email engineering@swansea.ac.uk or call 01792 295514.
