Open event FAQ

Do I need to book in advance?

You don’t need to book to attend an open event but you can save time when you arrive if you pre-register using our online form. It only takes a few minutes to submit your details and we can check you in quicker on your arrival so you have more time to explore! Don’t forget to have your pre-register QR code ready on your phone when you arrive.

Do I need to pre-register for everyone attending with me?

You just need to pre-register your own details and not the details of any friends and family who are accompanying you to the event.

What time can I come?

Our open events take place from 4pm until 6pm on a ‘drop-in’ basis, which means you can choose a time between those hours that suits you.

Should I attend an open event before I apply to the College?

You can attend our open events at any point during the application process. You can visit before you apply to the College, after you have applied, and at any time in between! You can also apply for a course during the event.

Why have I been sent an invite letter for the open event when I have already applied?

You are welcome to apply for more than one course at the College, however if you have applied for two or more different courses, you will always be invited to an open event to help you be sure about your course decision.
