Open Events are back!

26 October 2021

After 18 months, we are delighted to welcome prospective students and their parents back to our three campuses for the November Open Events.

The Open Events are the perfect opportunity to meet with our expert lecturers and current students, and we will be showcasing everything from engineering labs to creative studios, libraries, restaurants, salons and more. The events are also the first chance many will have to see some of the college’s newest facilities.

At Cheltenham Campus, visitors will be able to see the new state-of-the-art cyber and IT training facility ADA: Advanced Digital Academy, built thanks to £3m investment via our partnership in the West of England Institute of Technology (WEIoT).

The newly built Forest of Dean campus boasts panoramic views of the lake, a modern salon and fully equipped construction workshops. Gloucester Campus benefits from recently revamped engineering workshops, as well as a new student hang out area, complete with study spaces, which makes it a great place to chill out between lessons.

Visitors will be able to speak to our industry-experienced lecturers, hear detailed information about courses and find out exactly where a qualification from GC could take them. They will also have plenty of time to talk to Student Support teams, who will be on hand to give advice about funding, travel, additional learning support and career paths.

Our Open Events run 8-15 November:

• Cheltenham Campus - Monday 8 November, 5-8pm
• Forest of Dean Campus - Wednesday 10 November, 5-8pm
• Gloucester Campus – Saturday 13 November, 9.30am-12.30pm
• Gloucester Campus – Monday 15 November, 5-8pm

If you’ve not already secured your place, book one here.
