Open days

Universities all over the country hold open days throughout the year. Please take the opportunity to read the open day notice board in the sixth form centre.

If you are interested in a particular university and there is no information on the notice board go to their website and look for the open day dates. You are allowed to visit them but must make sure that we have written notification of when and where you are intending to visit.
