2021-2022 Taster Days

The Department of Geography is committed to inspiring the next generation of geographers through a wide programme of activities every year.

We run a series of taster days each year for students to become acquainted with our department. In 2021-2022, these taster days will be run as online, virtual events. They are free to attend and we welcome Year 12 and Year 13 students who are considering studying Geography at University.

This year we will host two Taster Days, one on 29th March and one on 5th July. Each Taster Day will run online via Zoom and is free to attend. You will hear some great taster lectures featuring the research of our staff, and have the opportunity to take part in a mock climate summit.
