Taster Days

In light of the current situation with COVID-19 and recent government advice, we regret to inform you that Taster Days and Open Days have been cancelled with immediate effect.


Our outreach and school liaison work is of great importance to the staff here and Taster Days will be a priority when the Department of Health advises that it is safe for public gatherings to recommence.

We are working hard to move our taster day provision online and provide a number of our workshops for your students to do at home. 

We want our taster days to be as unique as the students that attend them. We therefore have designed a number of workshops that could run on a taster day (subject to departmental availability) for you to pick and choose from.


Whether it is a half-day visit for a specific subject area or a full day of activities exploring the broad range of courses we offer at Writtle University College, you can design a day that will best suit your students.

Our taster days run from 10am to 3pm and include a wide range of both skill-building workshops and higher education subject tasters.
