Open Day top tips
- Make sure to check which centre you will need to attend for the course you are interested in studying in.
- We recommend you spend a good hour on your open day visit. This will give you enough time to talk to curriculum staff as well as have a look around our facilities.
- You might find it helpful to make a list of any questions that you have before coming to an open day. Don’t be embarrassed to bring a pen and paper to write down answers.
- If you are a school leaver it is useful to bring a parent/carer with you. They will help you remember things, and may have questions of their own.
- Check the entry requirements for the course you are interested in studying.
- If you receive additional learning support (ALS) in school then don’t forget to visit the ALS team, they will ensure that we pick up that support in college.
