Universities Support Open Day

Young people in Birmingham and Solihull wanting advice on progressing to university will be able to get expert advice at The Sixth Form College, Solihull Open Day on Saturday 7 October.

Principal Martin SullivanAs well as College Careers staff in attendance at this event, representatives from Birmingham City University, the University of Leicester and the University of Nottingham will be at the Widney Manor Road campus for Open Day. The College will be open from 9.30am – 3.30pm on 7 October, with a last entry time of 2.30pm.

College Principal Martin Sullivan commented:

“It’s great to get such wonderful support from three university partners. The majority of our students do have aspirations to go to university after they complete their studies with us and it’s not too early for those students who are currently taking their GCSEs to start thinking about higher education either. Staff at Open Day can help students to pick the right courses if they have a particular career or university course in mind.”

All curriculum areas will be staffed at Open Day, enabling visitors to meet teachers and students on all our courses. Specialist staff in Careers, Additional Learning Support and Academic Coaching will also be available to tell students and parents about the support offered to students during their time at College.

The College will also be showcasing its impressive range of specialist enrichments. A number of Higher Education institutions support the College’s Specialist Academies, which are enrichments run to support students with particular career ambitions. These academies include a Pre-Medical School, Engineering Academy, Shakespeare Academy, Psychology Research School, Teaching Academy, Law Academy and many more.

Further information about these academies is available and pre-registration for Open Day is now open and will stay open until 4.00pm on Friday 6 October.
