CityU Taster - An experience of studying at CityU

CityU hosts a series of exciting taster courses for secondary school students to give them a taste of studying a subject at university, as well as providing an opportunity to speak with our faculty and students. Our Taster Programme includes different sessions from different departments. All courses are open to students attending as individuals or to teachers bringing groups of students.

Can’t see a subject that interests you? No problem. We add new courses throughout the year so send us an email at to let us know what area you’re looking for and we’ll let you know if we have a course planned.
