As always, we really appreciate you being at the Open Evenings to represent the College and for helping to make this evening a fantastic experience for all involved. We hope you enjoy meeting your potential new students.


Pre-Registered Visitors

We encourage all visitors to pre-register ahead of the event. However we do get a number of visitors arriving on the night who haven't pre-registered, so these numbers can change throughout the evening. Please do not take a quiet course area as opportunity to leave your areas, as you never know when someone will come by. We want all visitors to have a great experience and be inspired!

What's happening on the night?

5:00pm - Whilst the event officially starts at 5:30pm, we often get guests showing up from 5pm so please be ready in your areas following the staff briefing from this time.

5:30/6:15/7:00pm Members of staff will also be leading a series of Welcome Talks about the College and its offer. Please encourage all visitors to attend this, (The talks will be based in the theatre). 


Finally... at the end of the evening could you please put down any collateral that belongs to the Marketing Team - this includes pop-up banners and posters. Please could you return these to the Welcome Desk at the end of the evening.


Application Hubs

There will be a main application hub based in the sports hall.

We encourage all applicants to complete the online application with the Admissions Team in the Application Hub, so please point them in this direction.

If necessary, paper application forms are available in the back of the prospectuses given to all visitors in their welcome goody bags.

There will be stickers on the floor at each campus leading to the Application Hubs in order to make them easy to find.
