New College Swindon will host an open day on Saturday, 9 October.

The College will be offering potential students, parents and advisers the opportunity to take a closer look at both its Queens Drive and North Star campuses.

Visitors will be able to view the facilities, take a campus tour and talk to lecturers and current students about different courses and opportunities on offer.

The College is still enrolling for entry this academic year, so anyone unhappy with their current provider or course choice can attend and make the switch, as well as those interested in study for next year.

Amanda Walton, New College’s Head of Marketing said: “We’re delighted to be running our first in-person open day for two years.  It’s a really important event for prospective students to come and engage with us and get a feel for what we can offer them.   

"New College consistently achieves good results and we’re a popular choice for many young people around the region as well as adults looking to improve their skills, access higher education courses or change career.”  

Adult students are promised plenty of choices to explore at the open day, including leisure courses, professional and industry training, higher education and apprenticeships.  

Staff from the new Swindon and Wiltshire Institute of Technology will be available to discuss the new advanced skills training on offer.

The open day will be held at both campuses between 10am and 3pm on Saturday 9, October. Booking is essential and can be arranged via
