These allows prospective students, parents, applicants, teachers and careers advisors to gain a more in-depth understanding of both our medical courses and the facilities on offer.

You'll get a chance to:

  • meet admissions staff
  • chat to current students and Cardiff trained doctors
  • explore our facilities
  • try out your clinical skills under supervision.

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. Booking will be available from 1 February 2019 so keep an eye on this page for the link.
