Master classes

Why attend a QA Master Class?

Master Classes are the best way to see if a course is right for you. It is also an opportunity to have a look at the classrooms, meet teachers and other pupils who are thinking about choosing that course as well as asking students what college life is like at QA.

Past students have said “If I hadn’t have attended the Master Classes, I don’t think I would have known 100% what I would be studying on the course, now I am excited to start in September” and “I have already met my classmates 3 times now, so it’s a little less scary now”.

If you have applied for QA, you will be automatically invited by letter.
