Are you coming to our A Level Open Day next week? Here are our top tips to help you get the most out of your visit to college:

Ask lots of questions
Make sure you come along armed with a list of questions. On the night there will be tutors from each subject area ready to answer any questions you may have about the course or college life. For example you might want to ask:

  • What key units will I study?
  • How will I be assessed?
  • How many hours a week will I be in college?
  • What support is available to me?
  • Where will I be studying?

Do your research
With so many different A Level subjects and Level 3 equivalents to choose from, it can be hard to narrow down your choice to just three subjects. If you have a particular career or university-level course in mind, research the entry requirements to see if there are any specific A Level subjects you need to study.

Book a taster
During February half term we’re running a series of Taster sessions, including an A Level taster. This is a great opportunity to meet new people and sample what studying A Levels at college will be like. You can book on the night or find out more here. 

Bring a pen and paper
With so much to take in you’ll probably come away from the evening with information overload. Make sure you come equipped with a pen to jot down all the key bit of information.

Take a tour
Take the opportunity to have a look around our sixth form centre to get a feel for where you’ll be studying. You’ll also get chance to have a look around our Heartspace which includes the Eatery and Costa Coffee.
