Every student with an offer to study at the College for September 2020 will be invited to attend Welcome to College Day on Wednesday 24 or Thursday 25 June 2020. This event is essentially a taster session for all prospective students, to give you a chance to try your subjects and make sure you are making the right choices for you! The video below promoted the 2019 event and will give you an idea of what to expect. There will be more information about the 2020 event nearer the time.
The event runs from 9.30am until 2.15 or 3.30pm (depending on your course choices). Staying until 3.30pm gives students the chance to find out about another course if considering requesting a change of subject. Forms to request a change of subject can only be completed during this optional last session of the day.
As well as getting a taster for your academic courses at this event, Welcome to College Day is also a great opportunity to learn more about the enrichment options you could take part in during your time at College. Enrichment is a great way to make new friends, but it is also a brilliant thing to put on your applications for university, training courses or employment, so we strongly advise all students pick an enrichment activity to participate in. The options open to students include academic options linked closely to certain courses or career options (known as Specialist Academies), as well as non-academic options like music, drama, dance, sport and much more – see the Enrichment Guide for more information.
