    Taster Sessions for Schools
    We have put together virtual taster sessions in a range of subjects across our four academic schools.  These sessions are available to schools and colleges and can be arranged at a time to suit you.  Most sessions are aimed at students in years 11-13 (or equivalent).  They last about 1 hour and will give attendees the chance to experience the subject and ask any questions about the course and the University of Suffolk. Have a look here at the range of academic taster sessions we have on offer.
