Taster Days

Taster Sessions

Taster sessions are a great way of finding out more about the college and the varied courses that we offer.

Performing Arts Session

What is a taster session?

A taster session is essentially a chance for you to come into college and get involved with a hands on session in one of our fantastic departments. You'll have the opportunity to check out the facilities you'll be using on the course you're interested in, have a go at the activities you might be doing in lessons and ask the tutors more detailed questions about the course. 

When can I come to a taster session?

Please check out the information below for details about the taster sessions we have coming up. Dates and departments may change so keep an eye out! 

How do I book?

Once you've decided which taster session you want to do (you don't have to stick to just one!) please email admissions@sheffcol.ac.uk with your details. 

Design & Visual Arts // Performing Arts Taster Days

Want to get an insight into some creative careers or work in the performing arts sector?

Come along and experience some of the things you could be doing in college if you study Design and Visual Arts or Media and Performing Arts at The Sheffield College.

Our taster sessions are a great way of finding out more about college and different subjects. They also give you a great opportunity to see what college life is all about. You can attend as many tasters as you want, all you need to do is click on the link to secure your booking.

Please let us know if you have any special requirements (e.g. wheelchair, interpreter, communicator) and/or if you feel that any other learning support will be required to assist you in your taster.

How do I decide which sessions to choose?

Depending on your interests, you can fill your taster day with sessions from one subject area, or you can mix and match sessions from both. For example, you could try Printmaking in the morning, followed by Music in the afternoon. 

However, if Game Design takes your fancy you should opt to take Developing a Game Idea in the morning and Creating a 2D Video Game in the afternoon, as you'll need to take both sessions to complete your game!
