Online Taster courses

Test drive our postgraduate degrees and short courses 

At Escape Studios, we offer a number of classroom-based and online Taster courses throughout the year, so you can 'try before you buy' and get a hands-on feel for what it's like to study with us.

Most taster sessions involve a practical session, which is a great way to see what the course is really about.

If you're looking to attend one our undergraduate Taster Days, you can book a place here.

Escape was the spark that started the fire, with an amazing selection of tutors, extremely talented and with a huge experience, I was able to absorb a vast knowledge about the visual effects pipeline and that was extremely helpful when I started my first job at Electric Theatre Collective, also arranged through Escape.
