If you are applying to the College for a September 2018 start, you will be invited to attend Welcome to College Day on Wednesday 27 or Thursday 28 June 2018. This event will essentially be 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! Watch the video below, which promoted the 2017 event to get an idea of what to expect.
When is it?
Wednesday 27 June 2018 or Thursday 28 June 2018
The event will run from 9.30am until 2.15 or 3.30pm (depending on your course choices). Staying until 3.30pm gives you the chance to find out about another course if you are 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 (which are detailed in the Specialist Academies Guide below), as well as non-academic options like music, drama, dance, sport and much more (see the Enrichment Guide below for more information).
Look out for more information about Welcome to College Day 2018 later in the Spring. Information will be sent to prospective students with offers by post and by email. We will also be asking students to RSVP to their invitation online in the late Spring.
