Important Dates


Open Events are an ideal opportunity to talk to lecturers and tutors, visit the facilities and find out about support, travel and finance.

You don’t have to book to attend an Open Event, but check the website near the time as we will put the programme online so that you can plan your visit.

Staff will be on hand to talk about every course that we offer and you can also attend talks about our the college, our academies and student support – make sure you leave plenty of time to see it all!
