If your students are unable to attend a Discovery Day or would like to learn about another course area at Solent, we offer a variety of bespoke subject taster sessions on alternative dates. We can also arrange for our academics to deliver an interactive session or presentation at your institution.
These sessions will link as much as possible into the level three curriculum and offer insight into degree routes and career pathways.

Subject taster sessions
Taster sessions are a great opportunity for your level 3 students to gain a better understanding of what it's like to study at Solent. They can spend up to a day on campus chatting to our student ambassadors about their experiences and familiarising themselves with our teaching style, facilities and support networks.
Click on the subject areas below to find out what taster days we offer, and to book. These sessions are available on an ad-hoc basis.
