At these events you can expect:

  • To be welcomed in by our Public Service students and directed to our main entrance.
  • To try a wide selection of workshops. Whether you have an appetite for catering, a passion to perform, or you’re looking to build a career in construction, this is the perfect opportunity to try something new, as well as meeting current students and course tutors.
  • To enjoy a guided College tour with our student ambassadors and apprentices, allowing you to look around the whole campus, including the areas where you will study. You can also take a virtual tour of our facilities here before you see the real deal.
  • To receive information, advice and guidance for all of the curriculum areas.
