Every student with an offer to study at the College for September 2019 will be invited to attend Welcome to College Day on Wednesday 26 or Thursday 27 June 2019. 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 to get an idea of what to expect.
When is it?
Wednesday 26 June 2019 or Thursday 27 June 2019
The event runs 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).
During the Welcome to College Day taster sessions, students will be given a piece of homework to hand in during their first lesson after they enrol. Click here to get a copy of the summer homework tasks for each of your courses.
