What to expect

At one of our Open Events, you will get all of the information you need to help find the right course for you. To get the most out of your visit, these are the three things that we recommend you do:

1. Principal's Talk

Don't miss the Principal's informative 'College Overview'. The talk will give you information about the College's brilliant results and facilities and things to consider when choosing your study programme.

Where: Auditorium (First & second Floor)

2. College Tours

Make sure you make the time to take a tour led by our student Xtras. You'll see our top class facilities and get a feel for the learning and social environments.

When: Anytime

Where: Any Tour Station (Ground & First Floor)

3. Course Advice

Our experienced staff are on hand throughout the event to provide advice and guidance on all of our courses. We also have a full range of interactive demonstrations available for you to take part in.

If you are an adult learner...

We have a number of part-time and university-level courses for adult learners, starting in September in a wide variety of subjects.  We offer a range of professional courses and we also run a popular Access to HE course for those without formal qualifications looking for a career change.  See our latest adult learning guide here.
