Virtual Offer Holder Events

Are you holding an offer to study at UWE Bristol? If so, you will be invited to attend a virtual taster session soon. Find out what to expect.

What are Virtual Offer Holder Events?

If you have an offer from us, from 15 to 27 March, most courses are hosting live taster sessions lasting up to 1.5 hours where you will get the chance to meet your course tutors and current students.

These live taster sessions are your chance to experience what it will really be like to study your chosen course. You’ll get a feel for university teaching - whether it’s an interactive virtual workshop or mini lecture. And you’ll also be able to ask in-depth questions about modules and any other aspect of the course that you’re interested in. 

If you receive your offer from mid-March, we’ll be in touch to let you know about any future opportunities to engage with your course and find out more about UWE Bristol.

 

How do I register for the Virtual Offer Holder events?

After making you an offer, and if your course offers a virtual taster session, we’ll send an email inviting you to register for our Virtual Offer Holder events. You’ll then be able to book onto the session(s) of your choice.

"I attended a taster session, which was fantastic as it gave me an insight into the course, lecturer, teaching styles and opportunities available. I’m so glad I went because after that UWE Bristol was my firm and only choice – all based on that taster session."

How do I access these virtual taster sessions?

We’ll be using a platform called Blackboard Collaborate which is available on all devices except Chrome Book. Chrome or Firefox are the best browsers to use and you don’t need to download any apps to use this.

Once you have registered for the sessions, we’ll send you a link to your session which will open up in your web browser. 

 

What if I can’t attend the taster session on the day? 

If you have previously booked a session and then can no longer attend, you can cancel this.

Some taster sessions are taking place over multiple days, so you can re-book a date that is more convenient.

Unfortunately the taster sessions aren’t being recorded so they won’t be available to view afterwards.
