The taster days will be held at The Royal Institute, London and there will be two specific subject streams:

  • 21 June 2017: Economics and Politics
You'll have the option to take part in Economics and Politics sessions

You also have the opportunity to work with academics and current students who can offer advice and guidance about higher education and your chosen area of study.
