There’s lots to consider when attending a college open evening. Our top tips will help you get the most out of our upcoming Virtual Open Evenings (9th-12th November) and make sure you get all the information you need – without having to leave the house.
1. Book a space and keep an eye on your inbox!
Make sure to book your space on the Virtual Open Evening/s you want to attend (there’s lots to get your teeth into, with 20+ events covering different course and curriculum areas). It’s important to book as you’ll get information and joining instructions for live Q&A’s sent direct to your email inbox (so keep an eye on your emails too). Make sure to read the information you’re sent beforehand as this will help you access the events and find out more about life at Nottingham College.
2. Take a look at our FAQS.
From getting connected to booking your space, our FAQs have got you covered. If you still have a question or can’t find the information you’re looking for, don’t worry, there’s plenty of ways to get in touch with us.*

* Mon-Fri - 9.00am - 4.30pm
3. Browse our website
You’ll find detailed course information, downloadable course guides and our Curious about College pages on the website. These provide a great overview of life at Nottingham College, information about entry requirements and course content, and can help you find the answer to any initial questions you may have.
4. Have a pen and paper to hand!
This sounds obvious but lots of people forget. There’s nothing worse than realising you’ve not got a pen or paper when you want to jot down a key piece of information or a question you may want to ask later on.
5. Ask questions
Just like if you were attending in person, you’re bound to have some questions you’d like answering. Part of the Virtual Open Evenings include live Q&A sessions where our course tutors will be on hand to answer your questions via Microsoft Teams – don’t be shy, get involved!
6. Finally…sit back, relax and find out all about life at Nottingham College!
Grab your headphones (or find a quiet space), get yourself a cuppa and learn more about Nottingham College from the comfort of your own sofa.
If you like what you see then be sure to submit your application as soon as possible! We will send you details on how you to apply after the event; so keep an eye on your inbox.
