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?

Important notice: Due to the situation with the Corona virus all Taster activities are cancelled up to further notice. As soon as this changes we will inform you.

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.
