Taster Activities

Found a programme that you like, but you’re just not sure yet whether to apply? Then come and spend a day studying at Saxion! Most programmes offer Trial Days and/or Taster Days. But what’s the difference?

Trial Days

Almost certain which programme you want to apply for? Then sign up for a Trial Day!

On a Trial Day, you’ll tag along with a first-year student, allowing you to really experience what it’s like to study at Saxion. This means you’ll take part in actual classes, which will give you a good idea of what an average day at Saxion looks like. You’ll find answers to questions such as: ‘What’s the atmosphere like in class?’, ‘What does a typical day look like?’ and ‘How much self-study are the students expected to do?’. The programme, together with the student you’ll be joining, will contact you to set a date for your Trial Day.

Want to sign up for a Trial Day? You can do this through the registration form on the programme’s page, under "Taster activities". See you soon! 😊

Taster Days

A few programmes also offer Taster Days. Looking at a course that you might like, but you’re not sure yet if this is the one for you? Then join a Taster Day!

During a Taster Day, you’ll attend a variety of mock classes together with other future students, so not one-on-one, to get a feeling for what the programme is about. Questions such as 'What will I learn exactly' and 'What skills do I need', will be answered during the day. This way, you’ll also get to know some of the teachers.

Want to sing up for a Taster Day? You can do this through the registration form on the programme’s page, under "Taster activities". See you soon! 😊
