Over a hundred new students got a taste of college life, sampling lessons, meeting tutors as well as fellow students at our Taster Day this month.

With over 32 specialist subject areas to choose from, there is always so much to discover at New College Stamford. The Taster Day offered students the chance to try out a variety of lessons and activities.

From preparing a fresh, homemade soup in Catering, handling tarantulas in Animal Studies, to styling different hair-dos in Hairdressing, there were plenty of activities to get involved in! Students were able to gain hands-on experience in their chosen field of study, preparing them for the start of college in September.

Not only did the students explore their chosen course, they were also able to discover what else New College Stamford offers, including the college’s very own Gallery Restaurant and Inspire Hair and Beauty Salon, plus our recently-opened Borderville Sports Centre which features an outstanding FIFA rated pitch and fitness suite available for free to all students.

If you missed the Taster Day, do not panic! It is not too late to apply for courses starting in September.
