Exeter College November open event

Which building should I go to at the open event?

Our open events are a great way for you to explore the college and subjects you’re thinking about studying with us. During most open events we open all sites and have staff on hand for you to get information and advice from. We also have teaching staff from all subjects, to give you course specific advice.

But with six sites in the city centre (and our dedicated out of town constructions and engineering centres) it can be a bit daunting when thinking about where to start.

Well first things first, don’t panic. Each city centre site is about five minutes from each other and that’s where the majority of our courses are taught. So if you go to the wrong site, you can easily be directed to the correct one. If you are interested in our specialist Construction or Technology sites, or subjects you can go directly to them, you don’t need to come to the city centre first. You can find their dedicated programmes at the bottom of this blog. 

Below is an overview of the different sites, and what subject areas are in each.

Hele Road Site (H)

Our Hele Road site is made up of four main teaching buildings, when you arrive you’ll be directed by our advice team or you can explore the site yourself using our open event programme, you can get your copy here.

You’ll find the following subject areas on this site:

  • Apprenticeships
  • Healthcare, Childcare and Public Services
  • English
  • Languages
  • International Baccalaureate
  • Humanities
  • Hair and Beauty
  • Hospitality

There will also be someone from construction at this site, however if you are interested in construction see our note at the bottom about our specialist sites.
