Experience Ara

Experience Ara at one of our Taster days, Master classes and Holiday workshops

Experience Ara is all about giving you a feel for tertiary-level study with hands-on taster days, holiday programmes and workshops in a wide range of subjects. Events are held throughout the school year and most are free. Depending on the activity, you might meet tutors and current students, use our industry-standard facilities to undertake tasks and challenges, or just have a great time learning about a subject you’re really interested in.
