Can I arrange a visit during regular College opening hours?

Unfortunately, we’re not able to offer visits during College opening hours. This is because of the likely disruptive nature of having visitors appearing during timetabled lessons.

What should I do if I don’t get to talk to the staff I need to during the Open Event?

Please email and an appropriate member of staff will email you back at the earliest opportunity.

How long should I allow for my visit?

You should allow 2 hours for your visit.  Please bear this in mind if planning on arriving later in the evening.  The evenings will finish promptly at 8.30pm.
