Your Open Evening Toolkit
There is lots to see at our Forest of Dean Campus, so we've put together a handy map to help you get around. But don't worry, if you get lost, look for a GC Host located throughout the campus who will be happy to help and point you in the right direction.

From cyber security to catering and health and social care, we have a wide range of occupations you could study. Familiarise yourself with everything GC has to offer.
Right now is our busiest time for applications, with students wanting to secure their place for next September. Places are given on a first-come-first-served basis, providing entry criteria has been met. Have one less thing to worry about and apply online.

Subject Talks: 5.30pm / 6.30pm / 7.10pm.
1. Once you've visited our Welcome Desk to check in, head on over to the Welcome Talk for an introduction to life at Gloucestershire College.
2. Next you'll head to your Subject Talk and presentations, where you'll meet lecturers and find out about courses. We'll be on hand to help you navigate - or you can refer to our handy campus map!
3. After the talks, we'll be on hand to answer questions and help you make an application.
Please note that we will not be holding a 7pm welcome talk.
If you're attending an earlier timeslot, you'll be able to see more than one subject area. Just ask one of our friendly hosts if you need help finding your way around.
