Taster days

What are Taster Days?

The School of History at Queen Mary offers a series of Taster Days open to Year 12 (lower-sixth) 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.

With over 70 modules on offer, come and see for yourself what we have to offer!  

When to visit:

Following the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), and for the safety of our visitors, students and staff, we decided to cancel the School of History Taster Days at Queen Mary University of London, scheduled for June 2020. We hope to run a new series of events int he Summer of 2021.

As the situation develops, we are hoping to showcase what the School of History has to offer in different ways. If you are interested in hearing about such events please fill in our form and we will be in touch as the situation becomes clearer and we are able to plan events. 

What to expect:

Below is an example of a typical Taster Day programme (subject to change):






University Choices - a talk from a member of the admissions team


Seminar 1 (students choose from a range of options)


Seminar 2 (students choose from a range of options)
