What to expect at an Open Day?

Our Open Days are the best way to get a real taste of college life and find out more about which study programme or Apprenticeship is right for you.

At each event, you will have the opportunity to:

  • check out the facilities you will be learning in, from our professional standard theatre and drama studios to our art and design workshops, animal grooming salons and TV studio
  • meet your future tutors - ask them about the study programmes you're interested in and the typical entry requirements you will need
  • see the type of work you will be doing on your study programme and meet some of our current students
  • get more information about our different study options - figure out whether a full-time study programme or Apprenticeship is the right approach for you
  • access support with your maths and English qualifications
  • speak to our in-house Careers Team - if you've got a career in mind, but aren't sure how to get there, our Careers Team can help you figure out the best steps

Also available on the night:

  • submit an application with support from our Admissions Team
  • find out about the support we provide all of our students with
