DMU Summer Taster Days 2017

De Montfort University (DMU) is launching an exciting suite of interactive Summer Taster Days to support, inform and help year 12 and 13 students, who are beginning their UCAS journey, make the right choices when applying to university.

Our subject focused Summer Taster Days will give students a taste of life as an undergraduate at De Montfort University (DMU) and the chance to experience DMU’s award-winning teaching and world-class facilities.

Have any of your students wanted to be; part of MI5, or a high-flying barrister, or maybe the next Turner Prize winner...?  Students can get involved with a range of activities from; investigating the transitional period from WW2, to getting hands on in our brand new clinical skills suites, or even mooting in our mock courtroom. Our Summer Taster Days will offer your students plenty of experience and skills to help with their future studies.

Each of the Taster Days are free of charge and include refreshments (please note the transport to and from the university is not included).

As a Teacher/Careers Adviser you can book spaces for a group of students, however, there are limited places available for each Taster Day and we strongly encourage school parties to book their spaces as early as possible.

We also welcome year 12 and 13 students who would like to attend independently.

DMU’s Summer Taster Days are organised by a team of dedicated School and College Officers who specialise in helping students realise their full potential, alongside supporting Teachers, Careers Advisers and parents through the higher education process.
