Deciding on a University degree programme can be difficult.  How do you start to make a decision?

Are you looking for a place on a well established course with professional accreditation and a comprehensive view of engineering? Or would you like to try more specialised course in tune with your particular interests?

Maybe you are looking for a campus life, self-contained and teaming with people of your own age? Or perhaps the opportunity offered by an urban university seems more appealing?

Wouldn't it be helpful to visit a university and talk to the lecturers in depth and find out what exactly is on offer before you make a decision? Or to speak to students on the course you are interested in?

Taster courses are ideal for helping you decide on which course - and maybe which University
