Medicine Taster Days
In addition to the university-wide open days, we hold several medicine-specific taster days each year.
These allows prospective students, parents, applicants, teachers and careers advisors to gain a more in-depth understanding of our medical courses and the teaching and facilities available.
You'll get a chance to:
- meet staff
- chat to current students and Cardiff trained doctors
- explore our facilities
- try out your clinical skills under supervision.
2019 Medicine Taster Days
Our taster days are designed to help aspiring med students (Yr12 and above), with a separate programme ideal for the parent/guardian or teacher supporting them.
Choose from two identical days: Friday 21 June or Saturday 22 June 2019.
The taster days are free to attend but booking is essential as they are very popular events and spaces go quickly.
Why not combine your Medicine Taster Day with an overnight stay in one our reasonably-priced student residences.
