News: Mak­ing the most of a Col­lege Open Evening

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

If you’re attend­ing a col­lege open evening there can be a lot to take in and remem­ber. Our check­list has lots of top tips for mak­ing the most of an open evening and get­ting your ques­tions answered! 

Our next series of Open Evening events are tak­ing place in Jan­u­ary and Feb­ru­ary 2022. Book your place online to come and find out more about life at Not­ting­ham Col­lege. We offer the widest range of cours­es for school leavers in the region — so what­ev­er you’re inter­est­ed in, we have some­thing for you! 

We are still tak­ing COVID-19 very seri­ous­ly at Not­ting­ham Col­lege. At present our events are sched­uled to run but we will be mon­i­tor­ing gov­ern­ment guide­lines and mak­ing changes where nec­es­sary. We will keep every­one who is booked onto an event informed. Wear­ing a face mask/​covering is now manda­to­ry whilst on col­lege premis­es. We will pro­vide hand sani­tis­er on arrival and each event has a max­i­mum capac­i­ty set.

Make sure you've booked your space

Book­ing is essen­tial as we need to know how many peo­ple will be there on the evening so that we can plan and man­age num­bers accord­ing­ly. You only need to book one tick­et for yourself/​the per­son inter­est­ed in the course at Not­ting­ham Col­lege (you’re still wel­come to bring some­one along with you!). There are mul­ti­ple times slots for you to choose from between 5 – 7pm.

If you can no longer attend please make sure you can­cel your space, you can do this via your Eventbrite account or by email­ing us: events@​nottinghamcollege.​ac.​uk.

Are you going to the right campus?

Our open events run across our dif­fer­ent cam­pus­es, so you’ll need to go to the cam­pus where the course/​s you’re inter­est­ed in are taught. Don’t wor­ry, our Open Day pages have all the infor­ma­tion you need, includ­ing which cours­es are taught at each cam­pus and how to get there. 

Keep an eye on your emails

When you book your place, you’ll need to enter your email address, this is so we can keep you updat­ed and send you any infor­ma­tion you’ll need about the Open Event. It is also worth tick­ing the box I would like to opt-in to receive fur­ther infor­ma­tion from Not­ting­ham Col­lege’ to ensure that you don’t miss out on any fur­ther events.

Plan in advance!

When you arrive we will give you all the infor­ma­tion you need for that cam­pus. If you’re not sure about any­thing don’t wor­ry — they’ll be plen­ty of peo­ple around to help you.

There will also be course guides avail­able to take away on the night — how­ev­er you’ll also be able to view or down­load these online. If you have a smart phone keep an eye out for QR codes that will direct you to infor­ma­tion too. 

Get your questions answered

Open Evenings are the per­fect oppor­tu­ni­ty to get your ques­tions answered — make a note of any you want to ask before you attend. Col­lege staff, course tutors and stu­dent ambas­sadors will be on hand to your answer ques­tions in per­son, and if you do choose to study with us it means you may recog­nise a famil­iar face in September. 

Bring someone with you

Feel free to bring along a friend or fam­i­ly mem­ber – they may even come up with ques­tions you hadn’t thought of yourself. 

Remem­ber, you only need to book a place for your­self and not guests you bring along. 

Have a look around!

There is more to our col­lege cam­pus­es than class­rooms so make sure to have a look around! Depend­ing on the cam­pus, you will be able to vis­it our indus­try stan­dard work­shops, stu­dios, sci­ence labs, salon spaces, con­struc­tion work­shops, learn­ing cen­tres, libraries and much more. 

Much more than just your course

Dur­ing the evening, lots of our friend­ly stu­dent sup­port staff will be avail­able to speak to. Our Well­be­ing team will be on hand to talk about enrich­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties at the Col­lege and our Work Place­ment team will be on hand to pro­vide infor­ma­tion about how you can enhance the skills learnt from your course with on-the-job, prac­ti­cal work expe­ri­ence. Our careers advi­sors, stu­dent finance team and addi­tion­al learn­ing sup­port team will also be there for you to chat to as well.

Decided you want to apply? Head to the application zone on the day or apply online at home

Each of our cam­pus­es will have a ded­i­cat­ed appli­ca­tion zone where you can apply for a course online with the help from our friend­ly admis­sions team if you wish. Sep­tem­ber may still seem a long way away, but it is use­ful to be pre­pared – and there is no oblig­a­tion to take up the place at this point in time. Even if you are unsure, it is worth get­ting an appli­ca­tion in as soon as possible! 

Appli­ca­tions can be made online and if you don’t apply on the evening then you can do it from the com­fort of your own home after the event.
