Taster days

The School of History at Queen Mary offers a series of Taster Days open to Year 12 students from all over the UK.

If you are thinking of applying to university, Taster Days are a great opportunity to experience a day as a university student, learn more about the courses we offer, explore our Mile End campus, and get advice on preparing your UCAS application.

Queen Mary was recently named as one of the top 20 history departments in the UK in the Guardian University Guide, 2018(link is external). Come and see for yourself what we have to offer!
