Open Day - what to expect

An Open Day is your best opportunity to uncover what you really want to know about our courses and get an insight into College life. These are things you can’t get from a guide!

Arrival

On arrival you will be welcomed by our student ambassadors. If you've pre-registered you will have fast-track entrance and a member of staff will sign you in. You can also walk in and register on the day. You will then be handed a map and a guide and a member of staff will direct you to where you need to go. 

Department Activities

To get a feel for what your course will cover we will be holding a variety of workshops taking place within each department, which you can get involved with. Watch the College come to life at our Open Day!

Tours

Get a feel for the environment you’ll be studying in and view our excellent facilities with our department tours. If there is a specific course you’re interested in, drop-in to one of the department workshops or see teaching and learning in one of our classes.

Simply ask a member of staff or student ambassador who will be clearly visible at a number of information points.

Principal Presentations

Hear the Principal of Canterbury College, Lucy McLeod, speak about her vision for the College and why she believes it's a place for you to make the transition from school to further education or a working role.

There will be a number of talks taking place throughout the day, check out your printed map or ask a member of staff or student ambassador for more information.

Information and Guidance sessions

Speak to our information and guidance team to find out your options. You can also speak to our admissions staff and finance team to find out everything you need to know before joining.

Ask the Tutors

Our tutors are passionate about their courses and will be on hand to answer any questions you may have about a course or College life in general.

Current students will also be on hand to give you a tour of the College and to answer any questions you might have about student life or why they chose to study at Canterbury College.
