A taste of what’s to come

Potential students thinking about enrolling on a course at the University of Bath are being given the chance to ‘try before they buy’.

The University is running a series of free Experience Technology Workshops aimed at 16 to 19-year-olds.

These taster sessions will give students the unique opportunity to see what a course is really like before they fully commit to it.

Many students start higher education courses without realising what they actually entail. Unfortunately for some the course doesn’t meet their needs. To minimise these risks at such a key life stage the University has put together a series of free taster sessions which allow potential students to effectively ‘try before they buy’.

The first taster sessions in Sport Therapy take place on 16, 17 and 19 February from 9am to 4pm at Swindon College where students will get the chance to:

• Meet the Society of Sports Therapists.
• Learn how to provide pre-event sports massage.
• Find out about life as a student.

The sessions are a mixture of practical and taught instruction including mini lectures and group discussion as well as providing information, advice and guidance from tutors. There is also the chance to meet and hear from current students.

Rachael Selley, Participation Manager for the Division for Lifelong Learning at the University said: ‘I would have jumped at the opportunity to try a course before making that final commitment.

“It’s so important to get it right and these sessions provide the ideal opportunity to see if you would be suited to a course and more importantly whether you would enjoy studying it.

“All the taster sessions link to the University’s Foundation Degrees which ultimately link to an Honours Degree.”
