As part of our commitment to providing excellent advice and guidance to prospective and current students, we hold a number of events throughout the year that will help you learn more about the college, the courses we have on offer and how it can help you get the career you want.

We put on a series of year-round internal open evenings to give prospective students the opportunity to access effective support in deciding the best option before they apply. At these events you’ll be able to meet the tutors and current students to find out a bit more about college life, chat about Apprenticeships with our Business Account Managers, take a tour of the facilities and speak with our Student Services team about courses, finance and careers advice.

In addition we also attend a number of external events across Cumbria, delivering our advice and guidance to attendees.

We’ll keep you up-to-date with all internal and external sessions through our events page, so make sure to check back for new dates!

If you can’t make any of our open evenings, you’re always welcome to pop in and meet with Student Services, who will be able to tell you all you need to know about the courses we have available and help you to work out what course is right for you.

Our open days for 2017 are:


Saturday 24th June 2017
