Bookable subject tasters*
Tuesday 8th February 2022 - twilight event
Our lesson tasters are aimed at Year 11 students who have applied, or intend to apply, to Huddersfield New College for September 2022 entry.
These are a valuable opportunity to directly experience your potential course options, and see what they are like. This not only gives you a head start on your studies, but also gives you the chance to ensure your choices are the right ones for you through a direct experience of your subject(s).
How it works
You can attend up to four sessions during the following times. Please note that a full time study programme is made up of three A Levels, or A Level equivalents. You can however attend up to four as we understand that often our applicants require support to firm up their final study programme.
Each session lasts half an hour, with the exception of our 3 A Level equivalent BTECs which last an hour. This is because if you study one of these, this will be your full time study programme and you won't study any other subject. The times are as follows:
Due to capacity, parents/carers are not able to join the lesson tasters. However, we have a range of optional bookable talks for our parents/carers on this evening. Further information regarding these can be found below.
