UniTaster Tuesdays - Online weekly university guidance webinars #UTDIAG

UniTasterDays in collaboration with HELOA are delivering impartial university guidance webinars at 12pm and 2pm every Tuesday. They have one key aim - to support students considering university to make informed decisions.

Featuring different subjects and universities each week

These events provide a one-stop opportunity to ensure students and schools are up to date with all aspects of university guidance.

Events are free to attend. They'll include presentations from different universities and Q&A opportunities.

Event topics and the universities attending will change each week - but you can expect to hear from universities UK wide on topics including why higher education, student finance, choosing a course, UCAS, and a range of events introducing studying particular subject areas at university.

Events are delivered as webinars and to support safeguarding procedures, only the UniTasterDays host and university event speakers will be visible to participants during the event.

The live events are for post-16 audiences, which students can also book direct. Pre-16 audiences will have full access to the recordings and event information after the event as well.
