Taster days

Get a taste of what it's like to study at ARU.

We run taster days for our nursing, midwifery, paramedic science, operating department practice, social work and medicine degrees. They're a great way to find out more about a course, meet tutors and hear from current students about their experience at ARU.

Schools and colleges

Discover university with a subject taster, specially designed for Year 12 and 13 students.

There's a range of subjects on offer, including art and design, business, computing, psychology, sciences, healthcare, nursing and more.

Subject tasters generally take place on our campuses, though some can be offered off-campus.
