Open Days

Come along to one of our open days to find out what we can offer you.

Why come to an open day?

Open days give you the perfect opportunity to look around our fantastic facilities as well as meet our teaching staff.

Our tutors will be on hand to give you the information you need to know about the courses you want to study with us, as well as the support we can provide you with as a Kirklees College student.

There will also be people from other areas of college life to help you with your decision making. Our curriculum areas will have activities for you to take part in and current students will be available to answer any questions you may have.

If you are unsure what career path you would like to take, or what qualification you want to do next, our careers advisors will be on hand to help.

Sign up to an open day

We recommend pre-registering online on to an open day to save yourself time from filling out forms on the day of the event.

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.
