Taster and Information Sessions

We are running free sessions each week across the academic year to give potential students a taste of what it’s like to study at the Hugh Baird University Centre at undergraduate level.

As well as seeing the facilities you could be studying in, you may also have a chance to join a class, meeting lecturers and current undergraduates on your chosen course.  You’ll have an opportunity to find out more about financial support and get help with completing your UCAS application.

(If you participate in a session, all materials will be supplied, so you won’t need to bring any equipment or supplies with you or prepare anything in advance).

See the list below for details of available sessions for each course:
